Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.
— Psalm 79:9
Thoughts on Today's Verse...
I'm sure there must be times when God must be disgusted with our ungodly behaviors and unholy choices. Thankfully, he is still our Savior when we cry out to confess our sins and shortcomings to him. There are, undoubtedly, moments when he acts to bless us when we are undeserving because we are his people who wear his name, and he longs to be gracious and merciful to us. Even when we are not who we should be, God acts compassionately to deliver us and preserve the glory of his name. God is our faithful Savior and loving deliverer, so let's passionately live to bring glory to his name!
Holy and righteous God, our Savior and Abba Father, please forgive us for our sins, rebellion, failures, and duplicity. Deliver us, not just from the consequences of our sin but also from the mediocrity that permeates our commitment to you. Set fire to your holy zeal in us to seek your glory and the glory of your name. You alone, O God, are our Savior! In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
