Today's Verse: Psalm 86:5 (KJV)

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
— Psalm 86:5 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Forgiveness is such a sweet blessing. But God does more than forgive! He cleanses and forgets. His love is not metered out or carefully rationed. He pours love upon us if we genuinely seek him as our God and Father. So let's cry out and ask for God's forgiveness and praise the mighty and holy name of The Almighty, confidently knowing that our Father longs to bless us with goodness, mercy, and love.

My Prayer...

O Precious Father, I call to you wanting you to know how important your love and forgiveness are in my life. Thank you for sending Jesus to show your love and pay the debt of my sin. Help me to live today as your child: may others see my joy and my passion for you as I seek to live for your glory. In the name of my Savior, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
