Isaiah 3:11–Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, for what he deserves will be done to him.
How terrible to actually receive what we deserve! We would not be able to stand under the judgment of God on our own for we are all evil apart from God. We need Jesus’s gift of mercy for none of us deserve anything more than destruction on our own.
Lord, help me to see my life and actions through your eyes. Only through the blood of Jesus can we truly be forgiven and receive Your mercy instead of Your judgment.
