God’s Compassion

God's Compassion

Psalm 40:11-12
Thou, O Lord, wilt not withhold Thy compassion from me; Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth will continually preserve me. For evils beyond number have surrounded me. My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see; they are more numerous than the hairs on my head; and my heart has failed me.

Left to our own devices and walking in our own strength, we will fail every time. If it were not for God’s goodness, His kindness and faithfulness, we would be doomed.

When we sin we lose our vision, our ability to perceive. Our understanding deserts us. But praise God! He continually watches us. He waits for us to cry out to Him for His mercy and deliverance. To come back to Him where we belong. To receive His forgiveness, even though our guilt has grown to the heavens (Ezra 9:6).

It is His gentle wooing which brings us back. His grace causes us to admit our sin against Him. His mercy allows us to ask for and receive His forgiveness.

Lord Jesus, forgive my sin that separates You and me.
Strengthen me, deliver me, set me free from the things
grieving Your heart, so I may walk a blameless path
to please You in all things.

One Response to God’s Compassion

  1. Yes as you shared Sally, God’s Compassion for us shows His heart of Love and Mercy but how wonderful that when we have put our Carnal flesh to death by The Spirit and we are Perfected in Love, we no longer Sin as confirmed in the Scriptures below and in other Scriptures too, this means we are never separated from God again because of our Carnal flesh.

    We put our Carnal flesh to death……..

    Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful nature to live according to it or if you live according to the Sinful nature you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death therefore whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

    Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God

    We Aim to be Perfected in Love…….

    Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect

    Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of Faith toward God.

    Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore as many as be Perfect be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless where to we have already attained let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

    2Timithy 3:17 That the Man of God may be Perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us.

    1 John 2:4-6 He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word in him verily is the Love of God Perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith hebideth in Him ought himself also so to walk even as He walked.

    2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.
