21 Days of Prayer Devotional Thoughts

This is pastor Bruce’s journal entry from day two of our daily reading connected to 21 days of Prayer and Fasting.

 

Scripture - “Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God. For he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger abounding in love and he relents from sending calamity.” Joel 2:13

 

Observation - God calls his people to repent of their sinful ways and return to him. When they do  he will turn away from the punishment or discipline he had planned for his people.

 

Application - Because of God’s great love and compassion for me, I have found, when I am truly sorry for my sins and turn a way from them, God turns away from the discipline he had planned for me while living in my sin. According to the loving nature of God, when ever I turn away from my sin, he turns away from his punishment and discipline.

 

Prayer - Dear Lord, I thank you for loving me so much, that you hold me accountable for my own sin, and I praise you for turning away from your discipline, when you see that I have genuinely turned away from the things that hurt your heart. Thank you for being such a good God to me, that you do n to treat me as my sins deserve. Amen!
