Today's Verse: Deuteronomy 5:6-7

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

"I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me."
— Deuteronomy 5:6-7

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God is Sovereign, all-powerful, and without rival. So it is absolutely amazing that he repeatedly chooses to bless us with his grace before he calls us to worship and obedience. In most other religions, their gods demand adherence, sacrifice, and obedience before their favor is acquired. But the One True and Living God offers grace and then calls us to obedience. Not only does he have the right to ask us to have no other gods, he is worthy of being our only God because of his demonstrated love and his incomparable glory!

My Prayer...

Almighty God, you are worthy of all honor, worship, and praise. I want my heart to always be reverent of your glory and appreciative of your grace. Please don't let me outlive my love and allegiance to you. I pray this in Jesus name with all my love and respect. Amen.
