I heard, “The God of All Compassion is still the Miracle Worker!”
In both the Old and New Testament we read about God’s compassion. Every morning you wake up, His Compassion gathers you up in His Arms.
Like a Mother Hen gathers her chicks, so you are surrounded by Abba Father’s Compassion hidden in the Shadow of His Wings.
The King James translates compassion as “tender mercies.” God’s Mercy is His Compassion. Some have said that mercy is “not getting what we deserve,” making it sound like such a harsh thing, but when you read the word “mercy” in The Bible, remember that it means God’s Compassion.
Wow! What a difference it makes.
The Strong’s Hebrew describes compassion as that of a mother and her baby in the womb, or siblings born from the same womb.
Compassion is felt DEEPLY inside. This is how your God feels about you! Jesus was MOVED deeply to His innermost being by the sick and lost and dying.
So many times, the New Testament states that Jesus felt GREAT COMPASSION for the people and HEALED them, delivered them and did great miracles. Jesus only did what He saw the Father doing.
Oh, let this bring you great comfort today. The Father of Compassion, the God who has demonstrated His Tender Love toward you, has come to comfort you in all of your troubles!
“Beloved. Weep no more. Surely I will be gracious when you cry for help; I always hear you, and I will always answer you, My Child.
I have unfailing Love and Compassion upon you. For you are flesh of My Flesh and Blood Bought by the Son.
I feel deeply about you, Dear One. The Depths of My Love and Compassion cannot be measured.
Your heartbreak is My heartbreak. Your troubles are My troubles. When you weep, I weep. When you suffer, I suffer.
I have not forsaken you. I have not forgotten you. Can a woman forget her nursing child, or lack COMPASSION for the son of her womb? Even if she could forget, I will not forget you!
Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me. I suffered on the Cross for you, Beloved.
My Compassion for you saved you by Grace through faith. Forever, My Scars shall speak of My Great Compassion for you.
I AM not moved by works, My Child. I AM moved by My great Love for you alone. My Grace and Power come to heal, save, and deliver.
All you need to do is believe and receive. My Compassion changes things, Beloved! I do not just feel deeply for you and sympathize with you but I desire to alleviate your distress!
Oh yes, Dear One! Do not be shaken. My unfailing Love is working in your life and never fails. Therefore come BOLDLY to My Throne of Grace in your Time of need.
Forget not all My benefits. I AM He who has forgiven all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from destruction; Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion.
Who satisfies your mouth with good things; so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. For I execute righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
Shout for Joy, you Heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains!
Great is My faithfulness. For NOW I shall comfort My People and will have compassion on My afflicted ones!
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing Love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed,” says The LORD, who has compassion on you.
COMPASSION : Merriam-Webster: The meaning of COMPASSION is sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.
Compassion alludes to kindness and sympathy, but there is something deeper, something even more profoundly powerful, in its meaning. The origin of the word helps us grasp the true breadth and significance of compassion. In Latin, ‘compati’ means “SUFFER WITH.” Compassion means someone else’s heartbreak becomes your heartbreak. Another’s suffering becomes your suffering. True compassion changes the way we live. (What does The Bible say)
