A Truth to Live – God grants mercy to those who love Him and judgment to those who oppose Him.
Scripture – “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me…to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God.” Isaiah 61:1-2
Prayer – Today, Lord I ask for strength to be about Your business. You have asked me to proclaim to others Your great favor and forgiveness. You desire for every person to experience bountiful blessing when they respond to You in love and submission. I cannot imagine my life without Your direction and leadership. I gladly turn over my fears of what others might think of me, trading them in for Your anointing and provision.
Grant me wisdom in my interaction with others, that I might be able to share Your nature and character with them. You desire to show mercy and love to all those who call upon You to be saved. If people resist You, then they are choosing a Day of Judgment and vengeance. I trust You to right all wrongs and to bring every person to an opportunity of forgiveness and blessing. You are filled with love, mercy and wisdom. I trust You and know that Your heart is for them. I pray today that my friends and family, plus those in this world would find favor in Your eyes. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
