Kind Wise And Gracious 

The Lord is kind, wise, and gracious to all; he is never mean, foolish, or demanding; he meets & and accepts each of us right where we are, takes us by the hand, and leads us onward and upward into our heavenly places. 
We walk right beside him; we sit right beside him; we talk with him face to face any moment we so choose, as long as we are willing to let him lead the way and have his way in us.

The Lord is kind. He is gentle. He is meek. He has not dealt with us according to our sins but according to his goodness and grace. Although he is firm and unyielding as regards to his glory and his ways, he is never harsh with us.

The Lord is wise. He knows just just how to deal with any given person or situation. He can compensate for our weaknesses and build us up in our strengths. He knows how to deal with enemies and with friends, with his family and with strangers. Nothing is too difficult for him. We will prevail if we learn to do his will, his way, in his time.

The Lord is gracious to all. He treats us all with the utmost respect and consideration. He will not violate our free will or force himself into our lives; we must invite him in. He treats us as if we are wise and noble and good, even as he is working those qualities into us.  
We need not fear his rejection. Let us not reject his kind initiatives in our lives and we will grow to be just as kind, wise, and gracious as he is.
