#whois:God? #merciful
If you, LORD, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?: But with you there is forgiveness so that we can, with reverence, serve you.: Psalm 130v3-4
Father, you know everything about me. You know every thought and action. You know me better than I know myself. Thank you that you don’t hold grudges or keep lists of the ways I’ve hurt myself or others or you. Thank you that I can bring to you everything that’s broken in my life. Forgive me and let me stand in your presence unashamed. I won’t forget what it cost you to deal with my sin. Here’s my life … use it today #andrewv

#whois:God?
‘Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God:. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm’ Psalm 20v7&8

Father, I am so easily tempted to depend on things I can see around me: my friends, my abilities, my money, my looks, you know what it is… Help me to see these for what they are: good and created by you but ultimately useless at holding me together. Only you can do that. Your name – everything you are – is so much stronger, so much more reliable. You never let me down. I want to hold onto you with everything I’ve got today #andrewv

‘… it was our weaknesses he carried, it was our sorrows that weighed him down: And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the sins of us all. Isaiah 53: 4-6

How mind-blowing is this passage? Does your idea of God include someone who would willingly be crushed and beaten so we could be released from the consequences of our rebellion? If you can, read the whole passage from 52:13-53:12 and let it sit with you today #andrewv
