Sweet Voice of Mercy

Written by: John Sernaque

Call to Worship


Psalms 91: 14-16

91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.


3BC 1150.7, 8

In the time when God’s judgments are falling without mercy, oh, how enviable to the wicked will be the position of those who abide “in the secret place of the Most High”—the pavilion in which the Lord hides all who have loved Him and have obeyed His commandments! The lot of the righteous is indeed an enviable one at such a time to those who are suffering because of their sins. But the door of mercy is closed to the wicked, no more prayers are offered in their behalf, after probation ends. {3BC 1150.7}


But this time has not yet come. Mercy’s sweet voice is still to be heard. The Lord is now calling sinners to come to Him (Manuscript 151, 1901). {3BC 1150.8}


Can you hear God’s sweet voice calling you? I know I do. If we answer God’s call to come to Him, He will answer. Some of us may be discouraged because of a Trial that we are experiencing. If any of us are going through a trial, or just coming out of a trial, or may be entering into a trial, if we set our Love on God and Jesus, if we honor Him and call on His name, He Will Deliver Us. However, there are conditions. Sister White says the Lord will hide those who have loved Him and obey His commandments. Then we will be able to abide “in the secret place of the Most High”. But we must enter through the door of mercy today, for tomorrow is not promised, and probation is soon to end.


Our kind and merciful Father,

We thank You for all Your love and Your mercy. We have sinned against You, and are truly sorry and humbly repent of all of our sins. We pray that in Your compassion and mercy, and by Your grace, that You forgive us of our sins. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness. May we abide “in the secret place of the Most High”, the place where You hide Your righteous. We pray that You will bless us on this Your Holy Sabbath day. Feed us Your word from on High. Speak to us, let us hear and understand the message that You have for us this day, may it live in our hearts to share with others as we go about doing Your business. We thank You for hearing and answering our prayers. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
