“If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Spiritual assassins aim to deceive and inflict harm by preying on our innate desire to treat others compassionately, especially those who feel like outcasts. To embrace “inclusivity”, “tolerance”, and “open-mindedness” apart from God’s Word is a form of self-exaltation that believes we can somehow be more compassionate than God Himself. Yet as believers, we must remain steadfast in exalting the Lord and adhering to His Word vs. every agenda that undermines Him. This IS actual compassion expressed.

Those who reject God’s fundamental design for humanity act defiantly rebellious against Him. Isaiah 5:20 says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness.” Salvation is available to EVERYONE through faith in Jesus, Who leads us to repentance. The balance of compassion and conviction are necessary components of biblical love. As believers, we cannot accept sin, as it separates people from God, but we DO love every individual like Jesus. People caught in the traps of sin desperately need both truth and love, so in conviction, they can turn from their sin and come into the mercy and goodness of Christ Jesus!

Guiding Points:

Call to Action: Stay faithful to the Lord by honoring His Word. Cover those in prayer who are trapped in sin and have fallen for the lies of the enemy. Jesus has defeated all deception and darkness!

“Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy” (Proverbs 28:13).

“Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:5-7).

“But if wicked people turn away from all their sins and begin to obey My decrees and do what is just and right, they will surely live and not die. All their past sins will be forgotten, and they will live because of the righteous things they have done” (Ezekiel 18:21-22).

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, thank You for Your mercy and goodness! Help us be compassionate to all people while steadfastly honoring You and Your Word. Move upon those close to us who are deceived and in need of salvation in Jesus. Let us be instrumental in reflecting Your compassion for them. In Your precious name, we pray, Amen!

Final Thought: Be a force for good in the world and leave the outcomes to God!

Responding to the Call: Embracing Jesus as Our King

“The righteous cry, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:17-19).

Focus on the Fruits! PATIENCE

“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
