Today was not a particularly good day, in my estimation. And normally, when I’m having bad days, I do not want to pray or read my bible or anything religious. But this 180 Days is not about me. It’s about a faithful God who loves me dearly.
It’s an understatement to say that God is good. But really, it’s the simplest way to express his goodness. I’m talking about a God who never gives up on you, no matter what you do. I know this as a fact.
I’m a young lady, trying to live a christian life. I have failed God more than I’d like to admit. I’ve walked away from his grace to do my version of the ‘riotous’ living, just like the prodigal son. But God still called me BACK to a relationship with him.
This is moral of my boasting today. No matter what the sin, God gives grace. No matter how great the sin, God gives greater grace. No matter how frequent the fall, his grace is more frequent. God forgave of countless sins: fornication, lying, stealing, hatred, unforgiveness, conceit, bitterness, maliciousness, and more. Yet with lips that have just told a lie, he hears my cry of repentance. Yet, with a body that has just risen from the bed of sexual immorality, he allows me access to the Throne of Grace so that I can seek and received mercy and grace.
Whatever you’ve done or are doing, God still loves you and desires to have a true relationship with you. His grace is sufficient and his mercy is new each day.
This God, my God, is good.
