Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We don't deserve the grace we need. We have no right to presume on God's forgiveness. We have no reason to expect divine deliverance. But in Jesus, God... Don't you love that phrase? But in Jesus, God has shown us his incredible love, grace, mercy, and deliverance. We can confidently call on his mercy and grace to receive his forgiveness, deliverance, and new life — not because we deserve it, but because of who God is and his great love for us. God's grace and forgiveness aren't just about bringing us salvation but also about magnifying his glorious name.

My Prayer...

Holy and awesome, God, I need your grace and forgiveness. I need your deliverance from the tempter's snare. Without your power and mercy, I will surely fail. May the grace you extend to me and the strength you display through me bring you praise. May the forgiveness you lavish on me bring others to honor you because they know your love and grace. May your deliverance of me from the tempter's snare bring glory to your name. In Jesus, my Savior's name, I pray. Amen.
