Jesus’ Compassion

Scripture: Mathew 14:14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Observation: I look back on my life when Jesus had compassion on me. I wasn’t following him or even thinking about him, but he was always there, protecting me, supplying my needs with his grace and mercy. I will never understand why he loves me so much and why he would have compassion on this sinner, but he did and healed me.

Application: As Jesus has compassion for me I need to share that with others. My testimony of God’s love for me will open the eyes of others so they may see the compassion Jesus has for them. Each day my Lord shows me his love and compassion as he gives me another day to share.

Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for your love and compassion. May I honor you by fulfilling the purpose you have created me for. Take this laziness away from me so I may serve you totally.

Lack of Faith

Scripture: Mathew 13:58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.

Observation: Jesus still does some miracles, but because of our lack of faith he doesn’t do that many. God has done miracles in my life, but I can only imagine how much more he wants to do but my lack of faith keeps him from doing them. I want Jesus to do the miracles of opening my eyes and doors to ministry he has planned for me, but my doubt that he can use me must hold him back.

Application: That my faith would increase not in my abilities , but in my God. I know I’m here for a purpose and I can see the miracles God has used to get me where I am. I need faith that God will complete the task and use me to glorify him.

Prayer: Dear Lord increase my faith and open my eyes to your plan for my life. Please take this pride, laziness and any other thing away that is keeping me from fulfilling the purpose you have created within me.
