The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
- Psalm 145:8-9 (NKJV)
Since the Lord’s compassions never fail and His mercies are new every morning, begin your day today with expectancy to receive mercies and fresh compassion.
Refuse to allow yesterday's failures and past sins to weigh you down.
Refuse to allow the voice of the enemy to accuse you of sins you have already been forgiven of!
While we always should learn from our mistakes and be diligent to confess our known sins, we shouldn’t let them become our main focus.
The Lord is faithful to forgive and redeem, and if He is able to move on, then so should we.
Instead, let’s keep our main focus on the Lord and rejoice that He is rich in love.
In addition, He is slow to anger.
How many times have we been quick to get angry and condemn ourselves and others?
Instead of condemnation, we should remember the wonders of grace lavished upon us through the Lord’s finished work on the cross.
By grace we have been saved through faith!
TODAY: Be attentive and receptive to the Lord’s compassionate and loving presence in your life. There is no condemnation for those who belong to Him!
“Heavenly Father, thank you for being slow to anger and full of compassion. Help me to be slow to anger to myself and others as you are to us. Let me be mindful of your new mercies every morning and refuse to listen to the condemning voice of the enemy. Amen”
