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.

Expe­ri­ence Life Abun­dance In Christ
