“Now, after all that has come upon us because of our evil deeds and our deep guilt-and even so, you, our God, have punished us less than our sins deserve and have given us a surviving remnant.”
Ezra 9:13 CJB
Ezra is basically saying “thank God” we are not getting the punishment we deserve for our sins, but He is giving us grace instead!
“But I can enter Your house because of Your great grace and love; I will bow down toward Your holy temple in reverence for You.”
Psalm 5:7 CJB
The LORD gives us amazing things because of His grace. We are saved and we get to spend eternity with the LORD! Why? Because of His amazing love for us! Yes we blow it, but when we call out to the LORD and repent, He forgives!
“Adonai is close to all who call on Him, to all who sincerely call on Him.”
Psalm 145:18 CJB
Today, realize, we all fail and deserve all the penalties of our sin! The Good News is when we call on the LORD, He is always ready, willing and able to forgive. All we have to do is call on His name and repent!
May your day be richly blessed!
