God's Grace

God's Grace

A man gazes out at sunbeams shining down on mountains
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.—Hebrews 12:15 (KJV)
In Isaiah 38:15, King Hezekiah wrote: “I will wander my whole life with a bitter spirit.” Yet when Hezekiah called out to God, his bitterness is exchanged for wholeness. When your mood needs improving, look to the Lord and become whole.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, when I become consumed with bitterness, I will call out to You and trade it in, for the wholeness of Your grace.
