The Compassionate Nature Of God
God’s compassion is something you experience every day of your life. Not because of your love for Good but because of God’s nature of love and His mercy.
Daily in your various works of life, you experience God’s compassionate nature.
Let’s consider what the bible says about the compassion of God in 2Corinthians 1:3. It says; “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of sympathy (pity and mercy) and the God (who is the source) of every comfort (consolation and encouragement).”
As a result of God’s compassionate nature, you experience the pity and mercy of God. You experience God’s comfort; you find His consolation in challenging and trying times. You find His encouragement at the times you want to throw in the towel.
If you are to stand before God and receive punishment for your transgressions, omissions, commissions, sins, wrongdoing; you will be out of existence even before the punishment starts. Not just you, but the entire human race.
God lets His blessings get to the good and the bad not because of the deserving nature of you or anyone but out of His compassionate nature.
You can ask again; what is man to God that God is mind full of him. What is man that he made man a little lower than the angels by God?
It is the Lord who comforts you in such challenging moments. At that moment of affliction, it is God who sees you through, who encourages you.
Even if a woman may forget her nursing child, God will not forget you because you are on His palm of each of His hands.
Lift up your eyes to God where your help and consolation comes from. He has not forsaken you. Don’t help yourself by giving into that situation. Don’t help flesh triumph.
Psalms 40: 1–2 says; “I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry.Amplified Bible Version
He drew me up out of a horrible pit (a pit of tumult and of destruction), out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings.”
One way to understanding the Bible is to take on the meaning directly by the understanding and guidance of the Holy Spirit of God.
No matter what that trying situation maybe, wait on God patiently and expectantly. Yes, you read it clear; “patiently and expectantly”, don’t throw in the towel, don’t give I to what the devil and his cohorts want you to do. The devil too can transform himself into an angel of light. Note: God is the Father of all lights. That does not mean that the devil is an angel of light. Since the devil can, so can his cohorts. So don’t let anyone use good, doing good, goodness and anything good to deceive you. Deception, deceptiveness is a masterstroke of the devil and his cohorts.
When you wait on God patiently, not just patiently but expectantly too, His will come for you to your rescue. He will not only come, But He will also deliver you as He is the mighty deliverer. He will break those chains. He will pull you out of that bondage, that pit, that embargo, that challenge, that situation which the devil and his cohorts have besieged you with. He will get you out of the enemy’s destruction. Those traps which the devil and his cohorts have put you in. God will not stop at these; He will set your feet on the rock and who, God has lifted up no man, no devil anywhere can bring down as long as that man continues to work and walk in that path which God has placed him. As if this step is not enough, God will strengthen you and make your steps steady. He will lead you through that process of transformation and be with you through it all, even when you can’t feel, see or sense His presence, God will further establish you. So be patient with God. Know that He is the only source and life wire of the entire universe. You only have to wait on God patiently and expectantly. Hold on and don’t hold up. Wait on God. Don’t do anything stupid or foolish, don’t let go of God and His words /plan for you. At that time the situation strikes, engage in praise even if it is for 5 minutes. Keep on praising don’t let the devil and his cohorts stop you. Keep praising whenever that situation occurs. Keep calling on God and waiting on Him patiently and expectantly and you will have God at work in that situation. The compassion of God never fails.
