Verse for 08-17-16


You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. — Deuteronomy 8:17-18

Thoughts on Today’s Verse….

What do we have that wasn’t given to us, either by God’s generous grace, unexpected blessing, disciplining hardship, providential opportunity, or our good health? And when we stand before the throne of judgment, what will our claim to grace be? Our claim on grace is based only on God’s generous and loving gifts that have made us pure, holy, and whole! Nothing we possess, accomplish, or buy can give us such a claim. Only God’s generosity, grace, and love can bring heaven’s greatest gifts to us.

My Prayer…

I thank you, dear Father, for your wonderful and extravagant blessings. All that I have, all that I am, and all that I ever hope to be exists only because of the mercy and grace you have lavished upon me. Thank you, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
