Awaken | Day 6


“The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.”PSALM 145:8-9

Our heavenly Father is a good, good Father! The Bible gives many examples of how much God cares for us. We read scriptures reminding and promising us of His graciousness: God loved us so much He gave his Son to die for us (John 3:16); God cares enough to feed the birds and clothe the fields with flowers, so He must care for us even more (Matthew 6:26-28); and if we, as sinful humans, can give good gifts to our children, how much more will God pour out his blessings on us (Luke 11:13).

Every parent can understand wanting to do everything in their power to care for, comfort, and help ease the pain of their children when they are sick or hurt. Our heavenly Father is just as concerned about each and every one of us, and has compassion beyond our comprehension. He wants to ease our suffering and cover us with His tenderness.

Let’s pray.

Father, thank you for being a good, good Father! I pray as you pour out your compassion on me that I would pay it forward. Help me see clearer the tender way you handle me and others. Open my mind to understand new ways I can offer comfort and love. I’m grateful to you for your love, patience and kindness toward me.
