I Do Not Deserve This 

JULY 31 & AUGUST 1, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Psalm 28:4Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

       “Why is this happening to me? I do not deserve this!” We have all heard someone make comments like this and possibly have said them ourselves. However, if the truth were known, we really do deserve everything we get and a lot more. Only the grace of God keeps us from getting what we really deserve. All the things that happen between people here on this earth that makes us feel as though someone has done us wrong or sinned against us. When in reality it was a sin against God, not us. Think for a second, how could they sin against us? We are not gods, nor are we sinless or perfect. Others may commit a sin that includes us, and it may be offensive. However, people cannot sin against one another. All our sins are sins against a Holy God.

     Our little white lies to one another are an insult to who God is. He is truth. Our unconcern for others daily is a slap in the face of a God who commended His perfect love toward us, even when we were unsaved. Our unbelief in the power and abilities of an almighty God is like telling Him we do not believe He can really fix our problems. Our lack of communication with Him daily through fervent prayer and Bible reading is hurtful to Him since we go around telling others He is our best friend.

     If we were treated as we treat God, we would lose our patience with people like us. Nevertheless, the grace of God toward His children seems never-ending. In all reality, we actually get what we DO NOT deserve. Oh, how glad I am for that.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    We should take a moment and thank God for his undying love and patience with the imperfect life we live. Those who have believed in Jesus for their Saviour will never get what they really deserve. Oh, how I love Jesus, because He first LOVED ME.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
