Compassionate God

“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!”

Romans 11:33 ESV

“Is anything too hard for the Lord? …”

Genesis 18:14 ESV

Straight from the Bible in just a few days of reading:

Words about God:

Compassionate

Kindness

Severity

Wisdom

Knowledge

God keeps his promises

Gracious

Eternal God

He protected us

Holy God

Jealous God

What a kind, patient, compassionate, and merciful teacher my God is.

A gardener knows which plants to plant next to each other to cultivate and grow a garden. He doesn’t reach for a hacksaw to prune a tender vine or stem.

How I love that God knows which tools to use for what ‘project’ He’s working on!

Have we received forgiveness from Christ?

Have we accepted mercy and grace?

Have we seen the patience of God?

Have we felt the Love (the real true love) of God?

And since those who have, and know what forgiveness, mercy, grace, and patience are and know that real never ending love – we too may show these things to the ones we love.
