Devotional – November 2, 2011

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

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.

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.
