Rich in Compassion
Ephesians 2:4 “But God still loved us with such great love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy”.
How much love?...
Take a second right now and ask the father to show you how much love He has for you. The enemy would like to scream in your mind, “God hates you! God is disappointed with you! You should be more! You should do better”. But Papa God DOESN’T say any of these things! He says, “I love you; I have compassion on you, I have mercy on you, and all I want is to be with you.
Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to get those negative messages out of your mind? It seems like no matter how many times we are told, or that we read in the Bible that God loves us, it still feels like he does not. This week I want to challenge you to ‘mutter’ the phrase “God loves me and is rich in mercy and compassion towards me.” Compassion means that God understands exactly what you are going through and why you are going through it. There may not be another person on the planet that understands where you are and why, but Jesus understands completely. Mercy means that you do not get what you deserve, instead you get something grand and wonderful. It’s like getting pulled over by the police for speeding and instead of getting a ticket he gives you $100! That is how great the mercy of God is. When we deserved hell on earth and hell after life, God stepped in with the blood of his son and delivered us and gave us eternal life starting right now!
Say this now and 10 times every day,
“God loves me and is rich in compassion and mercy towards me.”
