There is no note that can be sounded concerning God’s character that will so inspire faith as this one. I have seen faith reach “mountain high” when the truth of God’s present love and compassion began to dawn upon the minds and hearts of the people. It is not what God can do, but what we know He yearns to do, that inspires faith.
Modern theology magnifies the power of God more than it magnifies His compassion; His power more than it does the great fact that “the exceeding greatness of His power is to usward.” The Bible though reverses this and magnifies His willingness to use His power more than it does the power itself. In no place does the Bible say that “God is power,” but it does say, that “God is love.” It is not faith in God’s power that secures His blessings, but faith in His love, and in His will.

Join us as we investigate the Fathers heart over all of His creation. As Psalms 145 says, 8 The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. 9 The Lord is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works. Your faith will rocket sky high when you understand God’s compassion for you.
Part 2 – The Lord is full of compassion. In Isaiah 49:13-16 we see that the Lord will never forget us. His care and compassion toward us is greater than that of a mother with her nursing child. The Lord has indelibly imprinted us into each of His hands. This is a great picture of the crucifixion of Christ. This word imprinted means to “cut into” signifying its permanence. The permanent scars in Jesus body are an eternal reminder of His compassion for us.
