Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning? Of course not! Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. Romans 6:14-16 NLT
Father God, I love You and I give You thanks and praise. I adore You and worship You at Your feet. Yahweh God, You alone are worthy of all glory, honor, and praise. I bow my heart before You in humility, claim the saving blood of Christ, and once again I ask for Your mercy and grace for my life. Help us each to remember daily that there are no excuses for our sinfulness and that we must turn from our sins and live our lives and to strive to live like Christ teaches us in Your Word. Many of us God are suffering in many different ways, please give us the strength and resolve to endure. Show us Your affections and lovingkindness as our Father, our Savior, and our friend that we may experience a taste of what is to come. Help us to remember that You work ALL things for the good of those who love You and that Your plans for us are good. Help us to see and understand Your heart even more as we suffer in this world and help us to remember that You will bring justice to all of those who have wronged us. I love You God and I thank You and praise You for all that You have done and are doing in my life. I pray these things in the name of Jesus; AMEN!
