“But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31
Hey friends! Thank you for reading. I appreciate you!!!
Are you weary, worn out, discouraged? If so, don’t fret; there is hope. We serve a compassionate Savior. And He knows and cares about our needs – and our wants.
We see a beautiful picture of the Lord’s compassion for us in Isaiah chapter 40. “He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young” (Isa. 40:11).
The Lord is compassionate toward His sheep. And we are the sheep of His pasture – those who follow and believe Him (Jn. 10:26-27).
Christ is also compassionate towards those who experience temporary adversity. “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted” (Isa. 53:4). Jesus is there to bear our sicknesses and to carry our pain and sorrow. We don’t have to do it alone.
That’s why He says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Mtt. 11:28).
Jesus is compassionate towards those in spiritual distress, as well. “But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd” (Mtt. 9:36). Just like Jesus had compassion for the crowds, He has compassion for us, too.
We can take comfort in knowing that we have a Savior who cares about our problems.
If you have not acknowledged Christ as Savior of your life, you can. All you have to do is believe that He is Lord (Jn. 8:24), repent of your sins (Lk. 13:3), confess that He is Lord (Mtt. 10:32), and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins (Mk. 16:16).
I’m glad that we serve a compassionate Lord. Aren’t you?
