The kindness of God is manifested in his love, forgiveness and power. His kindness rains and shines on every human being and every other creature – day in, day out. The scripture says, ‘The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love; he is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. (Psalm 145:9)
When we go through tough times, his kindness gives us strength. ‘The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all who look to you, you give them their food at the proper time. You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.’ (Psalm 145:14-19)
In addition, his love and kindness helps us to take on the tasks of the day. The scripture says, ‘I lie down and sleep; I wake up again because God Almighty sustains me.’ (Psalm 3:5)
As you get to know our God Almighty, you can feel his heart and his kindness, when he says, ‘I know the plans I have for you (salvation through Jesus); plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you hope and a future; when you will call upon me and come and pray to me, I will listen to you; and when you seek me with all your heart, you will find me.’ (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
But the question is, do you appreciate his love and kindness?
Many of us appreciate his love when we praise him and say thank you; when we read the bible; when we take his guidance to heart; when we express kindness to others; and when we worship him in truth (Jesus).
God bless you!
