Hosea 2:6-7 (BBE) “For this cause I will put thorns in her road, building up a wall round her so that she may not go on her way. 7. And if she goes after her lovers she will not overtake them; if she makes search for them she will not see them; then will she say, I will go back to my first husband, for then it was better for me than now.”
The Wall of Mercy: The wall of mercy hedges us from going our own way. Mercy is a restraining force that prevents judgment from taking its natural course to give a sinner another chance (James 2:13). It also restrains individuals from taking actions or steps that may lead to their destruction. For example, when God confronted Abimelech for taking Abraham’s wife, Abimelech pleaded innocence and integrity, for Abraham misled him into believing Sarah was his sister. On hearing Abimelech’s plead, God responded, “Yes, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart. For I also withheld you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her.” (Genesis 20:6). Mercy restrained Abimelech from sinning against God. It was like God erected a wall of mercy to restrain Abimelech from touching Sarah.
Hosea revealed that God built a wall to prevent Israel from going her way. Remember, Proverbs 14:12 says,“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” God prevented Israel from going the way of death by building a wall around her. There is no strong man or woman anywhere; we are all products of mercy. Paul the apostle lamenting about the weakness of the flesh said, “For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” (Romans 7:19,24). When the wall of mercy surrounds a man, he will appear strong to everyone. We all need the wall of mercy around us. For March 2024, we shall call upon the Lord to establish the wall of mercy around us, in the name of Jesus Christ.
