A simple verse and prayer for you today:
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.” (Romans 5:1-2)
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you that I’ve been justified – made right – with you. And not because of the things I’ve done. Our relationship was restored through a simple act of little-girl faith, many years ago.
And since I’ve been justified, I have peace with you, through Jesus. Life-reviving, mind-altering peace…
And it’s you Jesus, who also offers grace.
Thank you that I can stand in this grace, as your Word says. Again, it’s unearned favour. Blessing that comes to me not because of who I am, but because of who you are.
Grace to wash away my darkest sins… Grace to get me through the day and all it brings… Grace to pass on to the angry and hurting.
May my feet stay firmly planted in grace.
In Jesus’ name,
