"Who crowns you with lovingkindess and tender mercies..." Psalm 103:4 NKJV
The loving kindness of God is woven throughout our past, present and future. In God’s Word, He reveals His loving kindness, mercy, grace, faithfulness and promises. The preciousness of God’s incredible love was demonstrated when He sent His Son, Jesus, to be the sacrifice for our sins (I John 4:10). God poured His love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:5).
The loving kindness of God is greater than any human love. Only the love of God can give enough love to reach the depth of our inner being and transform our life. God’s loving kindness is excellent, glorious, precious and everlasting. Nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39, Isaiah 54:10).
God called us to know and understand Him and to be partakers of His divine nature (Jeremiah 9:24, II Peter 1:4). He desires to display His loving kindness trough a personal relationship with Him. The more understanding and knowledge we gain about God, the more of His loving kindness we experience. God’s loving kindness is the source of life that satisfies the soul. The pursuit of God enables us to accomplish what He designed us to be and to do. It strengthens our faith and promotes confidence in Him.
God’s divine will is to bless us with deeds of goodness by the multitude of His loving kindness (Isaiah 63:7). God’s desire is to lift us up to His highest glory, a life of blessings. By Jesus Christ’s name, Holy Spirit, I am open to receive Your life of loving kindness and blessings. By faith, I release You to be my highest and best! Amen.
God’s Loving Kindness
1. Mercy: God’s gift of mercy is an attribute of His loving kindness; boundless, everlasting, constantly fresh and never failing (Ephesians 2:4). Mercy is like a judge finding you guilty, but withholding the punishment out of compassion or because another has paid the fine for you. God’s mercy toward us doesn’t depend upon our actions or desires, but it is His choice (Romans 9:15-16). By God’s mercy, He gave us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
2. Grace: Grace is God’s unconditional love offered as a free, never earned nor deserved gift of divine favor (Ephesians 2:4-8).
Because of God’s love for us, He sent His Son, Jesus, to offer His life on the cross, shed His blood as a sacrifice for our sins and to eliminate the power of sin over our lives (John 3:16, Romans 6:6, Ephesians 1:7). God’s grace teaches us how to live as He desires, allowing us to experience His total provision and continuous supply in all things.
3. Acceptance: Even before God made the world, He loved us and chose us to be accepted in Christ that we should be holy and blameless in His sight (Ephesians 1:4). The feeling of being accepted gives us the freedom to express who God intended us to be and to do. The greatest gift we can give to others is acceptance and respect, regardless of their behavior. Do not cause damage to another by judgment, control or rejection. We are alike in Christ. See people as the riches of God and find them to be unique and interesting.
4. Enrichment: To be enriched is having something of value added. When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, our sins are forgiven, our names are written in heaven and we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). The Holy Spirit is the enrichment to a human being. When we have the revelation that the Holy Spirit is voice activated and moves by faith, everything in life is enriched to all bountifulness (II Corinthians 9:11). Lord Jesus Christ, all things are possible. I release You to perform God’s Word in my life.
The amazing results of understanding and receiving God’s loving kindness is the revelation and experience of two words, ALL THINGS! God freely gives us all things (II Peter 1:3). All things are for our sakes (II Corinthians 4:15). We have sufficiency in all things (II Corinthians 9:8). God has given us all things for life and godliness (II Peter 1:5-6). In everything we are enriched by God (II Corinthians 9:11). Whatever we can mentally and emotionally accept as truth will take root and produce that truth by the power of the Holy Spirit. “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do His good pleasure.“ Philippians 2:1 (NKJV).
