“The Lord is gracious, full of compassion; slow to anger and great of mercy.”
I have to admit, that as a Child of God, I have seen God has being authoritative in nature for a great deal of my life. I have heard all of my life, that God is a God of love. After all, the Word says that “The one who does not love, does not know God, for God is love” 1 John 4:8. But my life experiences, like many have tainted this view of God.
It is only now, after a lot of spiritual cleansing directed by the Holy Spirit that I am seeing God the way as described in the above verse. Whenever the enemy comes in to try and convince me that God does not love me, I immediately capture the thought, and speak His word. I also think about my life and upon critical examination of life events, I have seen the hand of God at work because of His unconditional love for me.
God has been gracious to me when I did not deserve it, and has been so compassionate towards me. I know He sees every tear I cry, and every prayer of my heart. And I thank Him that He is a God that is slow to anger, and so very patient with me.
Child of God….no matter what…He loves you. He is so full of compassion towards you….after all you are his most prized possession. Be encouraged and know that you serve a King that sees you as the apple of His eyes…and one who loves you. Meditate on that!
