We find within our devotion today the sovereign grace of God. God is mighty to save. He is all-powerful and willing to bring us to repentance. He has given us new hearts, according to His free grace. God begins the work in us, He carries it on, and we will be perfected in glory for all eternity. We see Him to be the Author and Finisher of our faith.
As a result, we give thanks to Him. We give Him all the glory. And we trust Him.
Since our Lord saves according to His sovereign grace, we can pray for those who we desire to be saved. There are many unbelievers who we are close to and love. Pray that God would change their hearts and bring them to repentance. Pray that they might see Christ to be more precious than anything this world could ever offer. Many of us can think of people who prayed for us when we were far from Christ. We now, as new creations, praise the Lord for being “mighty to save” us!
And we close with our evening devotion by praying to our Almighty, Gracious, Sovereign God. When we feel throughout the day that we are sinking, we can always cry out to Christ who is quick to extend His right hand to uphold us!
Have a blessed day, Pastor Kevin
