He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
I know I am no better than any other human being. I know I have problems in certain areas. I also know that Jesus understands and stood in my place for my sins allowing me to have an advocate to repent all my sins. Today I repent for all sins and ask Jesus to forgive me. Although I feel no progress in certain areas I must still cling on to the forgiveness Jesus provides and press forward.
Verses to meditate on today
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Song for my day
Chris Tomlin (Jesus Messiah)
Dear Father I have areas of my life that are not pleasing in your site and I ask you to forgive me and I pray for strength to overcome them by persistent repentance and cleansing of my soul daily and weekly. Thank you for loving us all and forgiving us. We all struggle with different sins. Some sins that others struggle with I don’t and sin’s I struggle with others don’t. We are all made different and all struggle in some ways. Some worse than others in our eyes but in Christ Jesus’s eyes they all are displeasing to God.
