My own picture of God is that He is the kindest Person I have ever met. Almost 14 years ago, God began to give me a revelation of His kindness. I believe God wants to show each one of us the panorama of His nature. He wants to show you everything. But there is one aspect of His character that He will want to be yours in particular. This is your doorway into His presence. I love the compassion, mercy, integrity, and grace of God –but my access point to Him is always His kindness.
God has been relentlessly kind to me these past 14 years—day in, day out, month in, month out, year in, year out. Every day, the kindness of God has been in my face. I can’t get away from it. I can’t remember a day in years where there hasn’t been some word of God, some act of kindness, to help me. His kindness is relentless—I love that description. I’ve come to such a place of dependence on the kindness of God that I have an expectation for it every day. Something kind is going to happen to me. I wake up and I wonder what the kindness will be today. It is my image of who He is. That kindness He has shown me makes me want to be kind and generous to others.
