Zechariah 10:1…God is speaking to everyone, He said “ask for rain in the time of the latter rain”
The Lord is saying that we should ask in the time of the raining season because it is coming to an end; do not ask for rain in the time of raining season so that you will not say it is normal but ask in the time the raining season has almost ended so that you can see the power of God.  (2) In the time of latter rain, when it rains, it means that the time of dry season, would not be so long, because it had rained heavily, the soil will not get dry on time, it can make every plants to grow and have long life, God wants you to have long life and you will have long life in Jesus name. God said “ask in the time of the latter rain”;Rain is a symbol of blessing and today am speaking by the power of the living God the subject titled the merciful God. God is a God of mercy; He said “ask for rain in the time of the latter rain when everything is over”, when it seem that nothing is happening, God wants you to ask and He is going to bring rain into your life in the name of Jesus Christ.

Roman 5:8…God demonstrates His own love towards us……He killed His own son for us. Isaiah 53:10……Because it pleased the Lord to bruise Him….God sacrificed Jesus Christ for us so  that we might be saved; the plan of  God for you is that you will not go hell, but you will go to heaven.

The plan of God for you is that you will not come to bondage anymore, but that you must be delivered.

God will do everything to make your deliverance to take place. Zachariah 2:8…..God is ready to fight a great battle for his children; whoever touches you, touches the apple of His eye, whoever touches you, touches fire, whoever touches you touches trouble, whoever touches you, touches destruction of their life; and our God is a consuming fire. Exodus 14:13….And Moses said to the people do not be afraid, stand still…..Psalm 46:10…..Be still, and know that I am God….At times we are afraid and terrified by the enemies, but the Lord said “do not be afraid, but stand still and see the deliverance of God which He will accomplish for you today.” For the Egyptians you see today, the problems you see today, whatever is following you or troubles that the enemies have sent against you, the arrows that you see today, you shall see them no more forever. God is not postponing his day of deliverance, today is your day. 2Corinthians 6:2…..In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I will deliver you….God is ready to fight your battle; one of the reason why God has to fight the battle is because they have rendered His words void, people say no God cannot do it.

(3) God wants you to be victorious:

John 6:44 &65…..No one can come to me unless the father who sent me draws him….God know that the enemies will fight you before he created you, but He has made provision for your victory. God is a fighter; he fights for his children; every place where they gathered to mention your name for evil, the thunder of God will strike them down in the name of Jesus. Isaiah 59:19….So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west…..God will raise a standard against all your enemies; God said do not be afraid, He knows what they have done against you; He will fight for you and when He fights, he wins. Revelations 12:7&11…And war broke out in heaven Micheal and his angels fought……Satan did not prevail that day and he will not prevail in your life. When they show up in your dream the thunder of God will destroy them, when they torment you by night the fire of God will consume them, in the name of Jesus. situation must change, victory must take place in your life.

Isaiah 54:15….They shall surely assemble, but not because…..God dissociated Himself from them because their plan is not of God; Your enemies will fall for your sake.

(5) God wants you to be blessed:

 He said for the rain in the time of the latter rain. God is saying that I have everything in my hands, ask for the blessing in the time that it seems that there is no blessing, when you do not have any money, in the time when everybody is there help or that is supposed to support you is avoiding you, when you think that there is no hope at all, that is when God will show up……..
