Topic: It’s Good To Be Forgiven [Joyce Meyer Devotional 6 August 2019]
To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him — Daniel 9:9
There are many instances in the Old Testament of God’s anger when His people, the Israelites, would complain, disobey, and worship idols and false gods. But the amazing thing is how quickly God completely forgave them—He restored all of His benefits to them as soon as they turned back to Him.
Perhaps today you feel that God is angry with you. He is not! God is ready and willing to forgive your sins. He understands your weaknesses. He knows that we all, at times, succumb to temptations and wrong behavior, but He is a compassionate, loving Father who has provided for our forgiveness in Christ. All we need to do is ask and receive!
The very fact that we cannot do everything right is why God sent Jesus to pay the price for our redemption. God is not angry with you. Choose to accept and walk in His forgiveness today!
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for sending Jesus so I can be completely forgiven. Right now, I repent for any and all of my sins and mistakes. I receive Your love and forgiveness, and thank You that Your mercies are new every morning (see Lamentations 3:22-23). In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
