Day 13—The Day of Kindness
“Kindness can only be sown from a heart that is tender.”
(The God of my Kindness - Psalm 59:11)
Love is patient, love is kind…... I Corinthians 13:4
Read Psalm 59 & I Corinthians 13
It has been said that our actions speak louder than our words. The Bible states, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32 NIV). Lord, may I remember, to constantly walk in a disposition unforgiveness, haughtiness and arrogance; will cause my heart to be hardened; and prevent me from possessing the ability to express kindness to others.
So Lord, I ask that you reveal to me anything within me that is yet preventing me from the ability to show compassion, gentleness and consideration to EVERYONE. May I not be biased in my actions; but develop the renewed mindset that has become yielding to the ability to express your unconditional love.
May the spirit of pride never mask its self in me, thus manifesting and opening the door for an: unkind, egotistical, conceited, rancorous, vindictive, narcissistic, overly confident heart.
May I never forget; because of my own pain, hurt or “convenient amnesia”, the countless acts of kindness that you have displayed and are yet displaying to me. May I govern myself - and operate daily from a platform that will aggressively look for opportunities to express your kindness to others.
Lastly, may I receive your strength to endure all that this walk of kindness will present. May I not become discouraged or bitter when my acts of kindness are met with a reciprocation of negative and adverse reactions with diabolical intent. Elohay Chasdi, simply because you are a God of kindness; my determination is to be so engulfed with your presence that your kindness will have no other alternative than to flow from me to everyone that I encounter.
I decree and declare that it is so…..In the name of Jesus. Amen
