Spiritual Sustenance

“Let Your compassion come to me that I may live, for Your law is my delight.” -Psalm 119:77

The Lord is compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love. He knows our frailties, failures and neediness. Jesus demonstrated a compassionate heart in the Gospels by feeding the hungry, healing the sick, teaching the ignorant. He has shown us great mercy by opening our eyes, raising us from the dead, unshackling the chains of sin and damnation. It is only then that we begin living. This is what the psalmist prays for- Life lived abundantly the rest of his earthly days as he steps from this realm into Glory.

One way the Lord lavishes more life is through His Word. As we feed on it we are nourished, able to grow and walk worthy of our King. God grants a desire in His children to seek His face. Open the Scriptures and you will find Him for God is compassionate. He does not turn away any who come to Him.

Grace upon grace,

April
