“He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.” (Psalm 103:9-10)


So many think the Lord deals with us in terms of what we have done. If this were true, we would not be here, for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. He deals with us in His mercy and compassion. He is calling us by grace and through faith to trust in Him and to learn how to walk in His ways. Come then and walk with the Lord and see that He is always good.

Lord, You know me better than I know myself. You know the difficulties I have and where I stumble and fall. Help me now and always to see in You the hope of glory and to learn from You. Guide me to walk in the way of the cross knowing that daily I need to hand over my sin that You would grant me your righteousness that comes by grace. Lead me, O Lord, in the way I need to go.

Lord Jesus, You know all that is needed and have accomplished salvation for those who believe. Yet there remain the daily tasks in this journey of faith. I need You to lead me. Guide me with daily reminders through Your Word and by the power of the Holy Spirit to forever walk with You in the lead. Lift me up to be with You now and forever that I may be where You are. Amen.
