Have Compassion…

  

 We talk about having compassion often. Especially in a world plagued with the sin, violence, and sickness we observe on a daily basis; we can’t help but be moved, to feel “something”, right?  
But is that compassion? The Word says His compassion/love never fails, but how often does ours?

 2 things God spoke in my spirit on this evening about compassion that I want to share. First of all , compassion is for EVERYONE. We have a tendency to love the underdog. To care about the one that’s crying the loudest. The one that shows the most pain. The one wearing battle scars and war wounds on their sleeve. (not saying we shouldn’t show them compassion, please don’t misunderstand what I am saying) But God is an all inclusive God. Any one who excepts Christ is His child, but we are called to BE COMPASSIONATE TO ALL. The strong need compassion as well. Those too intelligent in their minds to see the glory in being dependent on God need compassion as well. Our flesh seeks out the weak to help because they are the easiest to see visible outcomes in. But what about the quiet person battling inner struggles, do we not show them compassion because they seem to be handling it well? Brokenness does not have a color,gender,or an age. It cannot be easily identified in a world accustomed to hiding. Wholeness is not determined by our outward success, so why should hurt, hopelessness and the need for deliverance be determined by our outward manifestations of pain? We need to show compassion to ALL! 

 
The second thing God showed me is COMPASSION IS AN ACTION WORD! It is showing the love of Christ we all profess to have, in action. Sitting back and pitying someone’s situation is not compassion. Verbally stating how bad you feel, is not action. We must show love in deed!  We tend to show love to those suffering through things we identify with. Example: I overcome having an absent father, so I have compassion and help those with absent fathers. That’s ministry. You need compassion to do ministry, but you don’t have to have a ministry to be compassionate!  Compassion is an outward expression of an inward heart characteristic. I don’t have to have walked in the same shoes to extend love to you. Jesus died for all WE had done. He showed compassion to ALL OF US, no differences. God loved us so much that He showed action and sent His Son to dies for us. How’s that for compassion/love in action? 
  
Let’s start walking in compassion. Let’s love everyone and show them in the way the Holy Spirit leads us. 

Prayer: Please Lord give me a compassion for your people like Christ had for the church. Move in me Holy Spirit that I not just see ailments in the natural, but You awaken discernment in me to see in the supernatural. Allow my heart to be filled with love that leads to action. Love that leads to more prayer with You in order to seek God given solutions. Teach me and guide me , Lord so I can BE FULL of COMPASSION !

Be Observant!

God’s infinite power surrounds us daily! There is nowhere we can go that escapes His ability to extend grace and mercy in every area of our lives. Our focus has to be looking at God through the love of Christ. Observe His truth. Observe His wonderful love. Stop looking at the darkness of your situation and glance at the light of this world!

Be Blessed And Be Made Whole! ~ ASB

It’s Not About You

It’s amazing how small you seem when you get in the presence of our BIG God! Remember, you have nothing to worry about when you have surrendered your life to Him.

Surrender this morning and allow Him, through the Holy Spirit, to handle it ALL!

Be ENCOURAGED, Be BLESSED & Be MADE WHOLE ~ASB

Be Healed!!!

Healing is attached to wholeness! You have to heal from the scars of past tribulations in order transition into your destiny! But let’s look at things a little different on this morning….
From now on, let’s not push and strive to become who we think we need to be…
Let us get rid of, or die to, all the things this world has added to our personalities that isn’t Really us! God knew us in the womb (Ref Isaiah 44:2) and He creates GOOD THINGS! Strive to be that “good thing” He originally created!!!
Let go of anything, anyone and any mindset not like Christ…allow healing to form in You..
Be Healed…

Be ENCOURAGED, Be BLESSED & Be MADE WHOLE ~ASB
