The Lord Is Gracious, Good and Compassionate

And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
Exodus 33:19 NIV

For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”
Romans 9:15

Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
Isaiah 30:18

the Lord delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Psalm 147:11

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;
Lamentations 3:25

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,
Nahum 1:7

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Romans 8:32

    Great meditation Jeff. God’s Word is so precious. I really like Psalm 86:5 as well: “For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.”

  2. 2 Pedro4jc

    A verse given to me by a dear friend some time back comes to mind: 2Sam.14:14 “We must all die; we are like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God will not take away life, and he devises means so that the banished one will not remain an outcast.”

    Thanks for your excellent blog.

  3. 3 Scripture Zealot

    Thank you for the nice comments. The Scripture is appreciated.

    I’m still not doing well if you’d like to pray when you think of it. Going through the database in my head with an occasional search is good immersion therapy.
