Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake. — Psalm 79:9
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
We don’t deserve the grace we need! We have no right to presume God’s forgiveness! We have no reason to expect divine deliverance! But in Jesus, God has shown us his incredible love and generosity. We can confidently call out for his mercy and receive his grace, forgiveness, and deliverance — not because we deserve it, but because of who he is and for the sake of his glorious name.
Holy and awesome God, I need your grace and forgiveness. I need your deliverance from the tempter’s snare. Without your power and mercy, I will surely fail. May the grace you extend to me bring you praise. May the forgiveness you lavish on me bring others to honor you. May your deliverance of me from the tempter’s snare bring glory to your name. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
