What I Read Today;
Revelation 11; Acts 28; Jeremiah 49; Psalm 72-73; 1 Kings 11-12; Leviticus 17
Psalm 73 vs. 21-26, “When my soul was embittered, when I was pricked in heart, I was stupid and ignorant; I was like a brute beast toward you. Nevertheless I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me with honor.
Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire other than you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
Too often we focus on our mistakes and our failures. We fall into Satan’s trap and afterward, we wallow in our guilt and shame.
But God’s mercy is infinite and his grace is supreme. He knows our failings and our failures yet he loves us just the same. He focuses on today, not yesterday. He stands with us and carries us through those times in which we fail.
That is the God we serve. The God of second chances and the God of infinite mercy.
