❤ Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "Stand In Your Love" by Bethel Music. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
🧡 Daily Verse: The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He will not constantly accuse us, nor remain angry forever. He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve. For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust. Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die. The wind blows, and we are gone— as though we had never been here. But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children.
☆ Psalms 103:8-17 NLT
💜 Let's Talk About It: There are so many amazing promises in our reading for today it is hard to know where to begin.
"He doesn't punish us for all of our sins," speaks to me because I know I don't deserve half of what God has done for me. As a sinner, I have made SO MANY mistakes, but fortunately, our God is "compassionate & merciful."
The last sentence is also one that stands out to me. I can rest assured my son and future grandchildren will be saved because of the legacy of Christ I am both living and teaching him. To those with prodigal children, I want to encourage you to go back through and read this passage today. Meditate on it. Savor it.
God hears your prayers, and I believe He wants you to know that He is working. He is faithful and His salvation extends to our children’s children. Praise God!🙌🏻
💚 Prayer: Dear God, thank you for encouraging me and many others that all your promises are yes and amen. Thank you for not forsaking me or punishing me as I may deserve. Thank you for rescuing me, for loving me, and extending mercy and grace myself. Help me to be a beacon of light to kthers who feel alone in the darkness. Your light, Lord, is what we all need. May Your will be done, God, on earth as it is in Heaven. Thank you Holy Spirit, for directing my steps. May my life be a living sacrifice. I love you Jesus and in your name I pray, amen.
