Text for Today: Luke 7:11-17 “And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, weep not.”
When we match divine compassion with our purpose, we begin to conquer the world. No one is strong in his own strength, but he is safe by the grace and mercy of God.
In your journey the remaining days of this year, I pray that, God’s compassion shall not be far from your life in the name of Jesus. A man under God’s compassion can never become a victim in the hands of the enemy, because God will be his strength and fortress all through.
It does not matter what you may be going through, I want you to know that God’s compassion is enough to bring you out of any situation you find yourself. Surely, your condition is not as bad as that of the widow in our text for today.
It was bad enough that she was a widow with no husband to support her and her hope, the only son, also died. Humanly speaking, all her hopes were dashed and lost, because the corpse of the her son was on his way to the cemetery, but thank God for Jesus, the on-time miracle worker who met them on the way.
Jesus saw her and had compassion on her and said ‘weep not” (v13). He went ahead to raise the dead son back to life. He is the same God yesterday, today and forever more.
This morning, God sees you in that situation and He is saying “weep not”. Out of compassion, He will intervene and bring about a turn-around in that situation.
Believe His Word to you, wipe away your tears and expect His miracle working power in your life today.
You are a Champion!
