The Grace of Forgiveness

The Grace of Forgiveness

A woman raises her hands in the arm on a sunny autumnal day

If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings, who would stand a chance? As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit, and that’s why you’re worshiped.—Psalm 130:3–4 MSG

Making mistakes, hurt feelings, wrongdoings are part of being human, but the good news is that confession brings God’s grace. Because of Jesus’ promise to forgive, no matter how many mistakes we make, or problems we create, we can still receive His ever-renewing mercies.

Today's Prayer:

Lord God, thank You for forgiving me—for lifting guilt from my heart and filling me with Your grace.
