Today we find kindness in the God of Mercy, Elohe Chaseddi. In His lovingkindness, He showed mercy to His people when he rescued them from captivity, and He is showing that same mercy in your circumstances.
Can you see it today? If not today, maybe you can recall a memory of God’s great kindness to you. Jot it down and carry it with today.
Remember that God is a restorer and forgiver, and in His kindness and mercy, you are restored and forgiven in Christ, who overcomes enemies of all kinds.
What enemy is buffeting you today? Know that, in Christ, you too are an overcomer, so stand strong in the faith.
Prayer of praise and thanks
Elohe Chaseddi, You give us great promises and follow-through on each one for those who believe in your name. Your mercies are new every morning. Thank you, Lord. We don’t have to be afraid, but when we are, You are so kind in comforting us with Your presence and reminding us we are more than conquerors. We are your beloved children. With thanks and praise, Amen.
Who is God of Mercy, Elohe Chaseddi
Read and meditate on the following scriptures. Commit them to memory if you can. They will bring you a clearer understanding of who Elohe Chaseddi is and how He is kind and merciful to all of His children.
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His mercy is everlasting.– Psalm 118:1 (NASB) I encourage you to read the complete Psalm.
My God in His lovingkindness will meet me;
God will let me look triumphantly upon my foes. –Psalm 59:10 (NASB)
35Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36Just as it is written,
“FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG;
WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.”
37But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. –Romans 8:35-39 (NASB)
Take care, my fellow Conqueror,
P.S. I’m a day behind but still writing!
Join me for this series, where we’ll explore the Names of God in letters to my friends, prayers, and excerpts from touching devotionals. I wrote a collection of prayers and words of encouragement to a dear friend and mentor struggling through an illness. My friend is fully recovered (praise the Lord), but I was so encouraged in the process that I wanted to share that encouragement with you. Click the link to access the Series Table of Contents.
