KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 145:8-9 “The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works”.
Another way to appreciate God’s healing provisions and to receive it, is to understand God’s mercy.
God’s mercy and compassion makes Him reach out to us to do us good. Normally the same Hebrew word is used for both words, mercy and compassion. It therefore implies that to have mercy is to be full of compassion.
The mercy of God is His character that makes Him withhold what we deserve in terms of punishing us for our offences, but saves us instead. This is a very important character of God that should ignite in us a sense of acceptance, knowing that God desires to see us well.
Let’s look at Mark 1:40, 42 “and there came a leper to him, beseeching him and kneeling down to him. If thou will thou can make me clean. And Jesus moved with compassion put forth his hand and touched Him, and saith unto him I will be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed”.
According to the Law of Moses, Leviticus 13:45, the leper was to move around crying unclean, unclean so that people would keep away from him. If anyone was to touch Him, that person would be unclean for a whole day and must be purified.
The Lord Jesus knew this law yet out of mercy or compassion He stretched forth His hand and touched him and healed him. The man also inquired that if the Lord willed, He could heal him. The Lord out of compassion also said He wills. Please understand that for Jesus to touch the man meant he was identifying with him. The Lord did not heal this man because he was God, but according to the Bible because of His compassion .Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Dear child of God, the Lord’s compassion is always available to respond to the pain and hurt of humanity. Our key scripture says the Lord is gracious and full of compassion slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His work”. God is good to all. You are included. His tender mercies is over all His works or handiwork.
Please be confident that God is very compassionate towards you, and so, you must joyfully accept your healing today.
God my father, your compassion never fails, so I open up my heart to receive your provisions of health for me today. Thank you so much Father, in Jesus name.
