Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
There are times when God delivers you from the storm and there are times when He wants you to go through the storm so that when it’s over you come out stronger than before. If you find yourself going through a storm, take refuge in the shadow of His wings and remember He is always protecting you with his love and mercy and He will see you through it.
If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps us from getting closer to God. The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) When you pray, confess your sins to God and because He is merciful, He will forgive you. Don’t let your unconfessed sin destroy your fellowship with God.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
God’s love for you was established since the beginning of time. It is confirmed daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in your life. God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable and everlasting.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Let your love for God and your gratitude for His mercy and goodness inspire you to share His love with others. Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father may be glorified. We need to do something, help somebody, invite someone because if we don’t then who will?
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
We all have days when we wake up feeling like we just can’t face the day. Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the King and straighten your crown. Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at his feet and receive His mercy for today.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
Wake up with praise on your lips, focused on God. Start your day right and receive the blessings the Lord has in store for you today. Each day is loaded with blessings of joy, peace, mercy, grace and salvation!
