The Daily Breath of God
Wednesday, September 05 2012
This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. In your hearts do not think evil of each other.” Zechariah 7:9,10It seems that the nature of all mankind is to be very self-absorbed as it matures. It does not matter if it is our marriage, our education, our career or even our retirement. There are no laws or set of standards that can change this nature, which has been seen throughout history. Just look at the wars, the divorces, the crimes or even all the swear words. But in this condition God gave his grace through Jesus Christ, not to fine tune our old nature, but to give us his nature. In grace there is great freedom, no monkey on our backs, no elephants in the room and best of all no regret. Grace gives joy and can put a smile in our soul in some of the most difficult opportunities. Today enjoy the grace and mercy of our Lord that is in you. Relax and embrace his kindness that is now yours. Take a deep breath from his word today and then go out and live in the freedom of who you now are because of his grace that renewed you.
