The Daily Breath of God
Tuesday, August 27 2013
My enemies surround me like a herd of bulls; Like lions they open their jaws against me, roaring and tearing into their pray. My life is poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax, melting within me. They have pierced my hands and feet. They divide my garments among themselves and throw dice for my clothing. O LORD, do not stay far away! You are my strength; come quickly to my aid! Psalm 22:12-19Along our journey we may have times of trouble. Sometimes it is because of decisions we have made and now have great regret for them. Other times it may be family or friends who we love and they respond in ways that overwhelm our soul with sorrow. All of this is what the Word of God calls the results of sin in our time. Christ knows the penalty and pain of sin. It was here in the sacrifice of Jesus the Christ where grace can be seen with clarity. Grace condemned our sin and put it upon Christ and then turned to us and gave us God's love without any condemnation, shame or guilt. On this new day, where ever you may be, may you choose to rejoice in his grace for you. He knows where you are and desires to refresh and renew you in ways that allow you to delight. Let his grace be the habit of your emotions and thoughts today. Enjoy!
