STRENGTH FOR TODAY
God has called you by the grace and loving mercy of Christ Jesus (Gal. 1:6). Do not allow yourself to be distracted from the truth of the gospel. Be properly grounded and rooted in Christ, so that you will not be tossed around by every wind of doctrine (Eph. 4:14).
God loves you and He has a lot of good and precious things in store for you. Because you are united with Christ, God has blessed you with every possible blessing for tme and eternity. His blessings are yours. However, you need to know how to possess your possessions. Sin always creates a barrier between man and God, and hinders him from receiving the best that Godhas to offer him. But God chose you in Christ to be holy and without fault in His sight. You have been adopted into the family of God, and you can call Him Father.
Be forever grateful for the wonderful grace of God that He has given to you freely. You did not have to pay for it. In Christ we are set free by the blood of His death, and so we have forgiveness of sins. How rich is God's grace, which He has given to us so fully and freely (v. 7-8 NCV). God kept His glorious plan of redempton secret, and revealed it at the right tme through Christ. God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was His plan from before the beginning of time to show us His grace through Christ Jesus (2 Tim. 1:9 NLT). Jesus came to the earth and He paid the ultmate sacrifce. By the grace of God, Jesus tasted death for everyone. So great is the grace of God, His favour, loving-kindness and spiritual blessings towards His people.
Prayer: Thank you Lord; You blessed me in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm. Thank you for the redempton through His blood, the forgiveness of my offenses, according to the riches of Your grace.
Confession:God has given me every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world. God loved me and chose me in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes. He is so rich in kindness and grace, that He purchased my freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave my sins. He showered His kindness on me.
