Wednesday, February 8, 2023

What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!
— Romans 7:24-25

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

While marred by sin and death, God still created and fashioned us in our mother's womb through his Sovereign care. But we bump up against the brutal reality of our weakness and failure. We cannot be like God in his most defining attribute, holiness. We sin. We rebel. We fail. We do what we know we should not do. We neglect the important matters of God's will and nit-pick at nothing. With our words, we hurt and injure those we love. Who can save us from these bitter and limiting realities thatd we find in ourselves? Praise and hallelujahs go to Jesus when we trust him as our Messiah and Lord since He can save us from these evils and make us ready to live a life of blessing to others and God.

My Prayer...

Worthy of praise and honor are you God Most High. You are mighty, holy, and beyond compare. You have chosen to be loving, generous, merciful, forgiving, and tender with us, your children. Thank you for being God, just the way you have chosen to be God. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
