Compassion – who needs you to show them the compassion of God today?

You know when you have been hurt and disappointed so many times you seem to lose sight of other people’s hurt and pain. You actually don’t want to show any compassion or feel sympathetic towards them – they probably deserve it. No, it isn’t true, please don’t fall into this trap. Take some time and read Isaiah 61. God loves you and you are so important to Him.

Isaiah 61: 1 AMP

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed and commissioned me to bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, to proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives and freedom to prisoners,”

I fell into this trap; I just didn’t show any compassion towards anybody. When something happened I thought “you probably deserve it.” They will survive and get over it; the truth is some people need your compassion. I think of my ageing mother. She also made mistakes and life hasn’t been easy. She finds herself in a difficult position and because of past mistakes, people don’t show her any compassion.

I think of the Lord Jesus when He was speaking to His disciples in Matthew 15 verse 32. Jesus felt compassion towards the people who were with Him for 3 days; He didn’t want to send them away hungry. Do you get me? Jesus feels compassion toward people, He understands them and is compassionate about them.

  1. Rodman Williams’s stated, “Compassion is the wellspring of miracles?”

Prayer

Abba Father, please show me today who need my compassion, show me how to comfort this person and show compassion towards them. I ask this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Amen

Why aren’t my Prayers being answered?

I used to believe God didn’t care much for me because when I prayed about a specific situation I wouldn’t receive answers swiftly. Then I learned an important lesson.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 AMP ~ A Time for Everything

“There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven -”

I made so many detrimental mistakes in my life and there is no turning back. It seems that no amount of prayer and crying would change it. Then I came to realize God is still God and in control of my life. I have come clean and repented of my sins to the parties involved and with God. So why aren’t my prayers answered? I thought about this and I believe there is a time for everything, as indicated by Ecclesiastes 3.

God has provided according to my needs and I am so grateful for His supernatural favour in my life. His mercies are new every day. This reminded me of Habakkuk chapter 2 verse 3 “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time.” We need to remember that our prayers will be answered at the appointed time, we need to wait. “It hurries towards the goal [of fulfilment]; it will not fail.” I am so glad that whatever God has destined for me it will not fail. “Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay.”

I have come to realize God doesn’t work according to my schedule, and if you know me I am very impatient, things need to happen now. If I want something I want it now. I don’t want to wait because I am too impatient. Guess what? I have to wait, it will come in its own time.

Prayer

Abba Father, I don’t know how to fix my past, I failed badly and I made such big and detrimental mistakes. I have committed it to You and I believe You understand where I am coming from. I want to say thank You for this opportunity, You are able to change things around in each one of our lives. If prayers aren’t answered right now, give us the vision and understanding that You are still in control and all good things will come to those who Love You. I pray this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen

Testify!

I know when I stopped talking about all the wonderful things God was doing in my own life, my spiritual growth stopped.  I became stagnant and I was afraid to speak boldly about God.

Psalm 78: 5 – 7 NKJV

“For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children; that the generation to come might know them, the children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments;”

Finances are something I struggle with and I am constantly worried that I won’t have enough to cover all my debt. The year before I was blessed and I started work, as a contract. I received untold blessings, to the extent that I am able to help my aged mom and her husband. I also am able to do things at home and help my husband. I am totally grateful for the finance I have right now. I want to encourage you today. I decided when I started working that I would give my tithings and I would also help my ageing mom. The two amount I give could buy me so many nice things, but I looked at my options and decide the two most important things in my life is God – my Heavenly Father and my mom.

Take courage and think on this in Psalms 13 verses 5 to 6 “But I have trusted and relied on and been confident in Your loving kindness and faithfulness; my heart shall rejoice and delight in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD because He has dealt bountifully with me.” On reading this I am truly grateful to the LORD my God. He truly has dealt bountifully with me.

My contract is extended with a year and the threat of company closure is looming over us but I have taken to prayer and believe God has opened this door for me. He has blessed me so that I am able to be a blessing to my mom and that I am able to honour Him in giving my tithings. I feel strongly about this testimony and I want to encourage you today. I prayed compassionately asking for forgiveness of sin and trusting God to open the right doors for me. He has and I want to give Him all the praise and the Glory.

Prayer

Lord, Abba Father, thank You for providing according to my needs. Lord, I want to pray that You will send Your Holy Spirit out with my blog today. Lord each person reading this blog to be touched by Your Holy Spirit. I am praying Lord for more testimonies. Lord without You I am nothing and I thank You from the bottom of my heart for the Holy Spirit. Thank You for reminding me of my wealth and prosperity right now. I am grateful that You have blessed me so abundantly. In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen
