Devotional – November 2, 2011

VERSE:
Psalm 103:10–He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

TRUTH:
Often, we think we deserve certain things, or that God owes us something. Thankfully, God does not immediately give us what we deserve. He is merciful and patient and has made a way for forgiveness of our sins. Only if we DON’T request His merciful gift of salvation does He eventually give us exactly what we deserve.

RESPONSE:
Lord, thank You so much for not giving us what we as sinners deserve, but for making a way to come to You. I pray You will help me to never overlook all that You have saved me from: the direct consequences of my sin.
