Read Daniel chapter 9


Daniel 9:9–The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him.


As we are seeing all that the Lord has done around us, we are forced to admit that we are rebellious. We are sinful and we do not do what God has commanded us to do. However, God is merciful. He will forgive us and He will move and work in our lives if we will acknowledge our sins and confess them to God. The question is not about God’s ability to forgive, or even His desire to forgive; the question is about our confession of our rebellion. Will we confess and seek forgiveness today?


Father, I know that You are a forgiving and merciful God. Thank You for offering that forgiveness to me, a sinner. Keep me focused on You as I come and confess my sins to You. Thank You for all that You have done for me.
