The Daily Breath of God
Monday, May 07 2012
LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who keep his oath even when it hurts. Psalm 15:1-4Heavenly Father, these are truths that overwhelm mankind. These simple truths seem to allude us along our journey. When we find ourselves doing and living just the opposite of these simple truths, then we feel accused and at times worthless. Father, it is in this place and condition that you have given and expressed your grace to us through Jesus the Christ. Your grace cleanses us from the power and condemnation of our sin. Your grace gives us freedom of our emotions, thoughts, and words to experience your glory, rejoice in your life and live as an encouragement to others. May we live overwhelmed by your grace in the freedom of your love without condemnation and be a living expression of the good news of grace found in Jesus the Christ. On this new day may this prayer be yours to the fullest and may our Lord grant to you in fullest measure the beauty, the freedom and the refreshment of his grace in your life and family.
