Time for Grace-May 22, 2024

Psalm 5:11-12

But let all who take refuge in you be glad. Let them sing for joy forever. You cover them with protection, so those who love your name rejoice in you. Yes, you bless the righteous, Lord. You surround them with your favor as a shield.

Dear Lord Jesus,

We have protection through you and can rejoice in what you have done for us. We are constantly bombarded with temptations from the Devil, the world, and our sinful flesh. We deal with all the things that come at us: life problems, relationship issues, family matters, sickness, diseases, and death. All these things come at us because of sin; the entire world is affected by it.

The only place we can find solace in this life is in you. You defeated sin, death, and the Devil when you suffered and died on the cross. While we wander in this wilderness, they are a part of this world. However, because of Your salvational work, they have no power over those who believe in you.

By faith, we run to you, and you provide us with safety. None of those things—sin, death, or the Devil—can affect our souls when we trust in you. You surround us with your love, so what can the world do to us? The answer is nothing since you protect us.

Allow us to see, know, and trust in you so we know all our sins are forgiven and that we have salvation and eternal life by being wrapped in your righteousness and surrounded by your love.

Let our reaction be to share the good news of your grace and mercy with all we encounter so that they may also trust in You and be surrounded by your love. We ask that your Spirit begin faith in others, restoring them to the Father so that they will enjoy salvation and eternal life. Amen.

Written through Pastor Roger Emmons

Jesus cares for all who believe in Him; He protects and wraps them in His love. Because Jesus has taken all your sins into Himself, you are safe, and He has saved you. Salvation is a great reason to sing for joy.
