My Daily Strength

God's goodness -- Rev. Dr. J. Samuel Sudhakar

Scripture : 'Remember not the sins of my youth ... according to Thy mercy, remember Thou me' Psalm 25:7

The Word of God says all are sinners and have fallen short of the glory of God. Except God there is no one holy and God dwells in the Holy of holies and no man can ever come near His holiness.

Your disobedience to God's Word distances you from God and your soul becomes weary. Unless and until you repent and make a commitment that you will sin no more, there will not be any rest for you.

Though David was a good lad from his youth yet he asked the LORD not to remember the sins of his youth neither any transgressions that he had committed. Without God's mercy and goodness none can enter into God's presence, for God is a consuming fire, and sin cannot stand before Him.

Dear son and daughter of God, will you ask the LORD not to remember the sins of your youth? Break your heart before the LORD and ask Him to forgive you. You will experience the forgiveness of the LORD and His mercies will be showered on you. After the LORD forgives you through His mercies, He will lead you and guide you. He will also teach you that you might fear God.

If you have received your forgiveness and if you have been led by His mercy, remember that the LORD will lift you high above your enemies. He will never put you to shame. The LORD will reveal His secrets to you as you fear Him and enlarge your borders with love and happiness. Such is the grace of God!

Prayer : LORD, I thank Thee for Thy goodness and mercy. Amen.

Thought for the Day : God's everlasting mercies cover every sin.
