I heard this spoken to me upon waking up, “Jesus IS the Compassion of God.”
God does not just have love, but He IS Love. In the same way He does not just have compassion, He IS COMPASSION.
“Beloved. I desire that you know Me as the God of all comfort and Your Father of Compassion.
I AM COMPASSION, My Child. I feel your pains and sorrows. I intimately know the way that you feel in your body, mind, and emotions.
I AM the God of all compassion who comforts you through all your troubles. I not only have compassion on you but in your troubles, I make a way where there seems no way.
This is Truth. Where there is true compassion, there comes an urgent desire to help. Compassion becomes ACTION.
I AM still the Miracle Worker, Beloved. You are never left on your own, Dear One. It is not in My nature.
From My great Compassion for you came the Cross. My Compassion causes heaven and earth to be moved on your behalf. Can you believe this, My Child?
Can you see Me in this Light? You are no longer under My Judgement, Dear One, oh no, you dwell under My Wings of Compassion.
SURELY, Goodness and Mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. Yes, Little One. Only Believe.
My Compassion for you causes ALL things to work together for GOOD. Believe who I AM, and be comforted this day. And you, Beloved shall comfort others as I have comforted you.”
Compassion: Strong’s 3628 DEEP emotions and feelings about someone’s difficulty or misfortune; capacity for sharing the painful feelings of another.
Compassion implies pity coupled with an URGENT DESIRE TO AID OR TO SPARE.
Compassion refers to both a feeling and the action that stems from that feeling.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of COMPASSION and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ,” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5.
“When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, “Do not weep.” Luke 7:13.

“When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick,” Matthew 14:14.
“Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him,” Matthew 20:34.
“When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things,” Mark 6:34.
