Daily D – Micah 7:18-20
Where is another God like you,
who pardons the guilt of the remnant,
overlooking the sins of his special people?
You will not stay angry with your people forever,
because you delight in showing unfailing love.
Once again you will have compassion on us.
You will trample our sins under your feet
and throw them into the depths of the ocean!
You will show us your faithfulness and unfailing love
as you promised to our ancestors Abraham and Jacob long ago. (NLT)
God is more interested in saving, restoring, and healing than we are in receiving these gifts of his grace, mercy, and unfailing love.
Another way of saying this is we live about as well as we want.
When we come to understand how God’s expectations lead to our best possible lives, everything changes.
It really is possible to get out of our own way.
It really is possible to live with purpose.
It really is possible to experience peace.
God delights in demonstrating his unfailing love. Praise becomes our morning routine when we discover this truth. Thanksgiving becomes our settled disposition. Expectancy shifts our focus from the way things are to the way things can be
This is good news for a Monday. What a great start to the week!
I will live in the broadness of God’s goodness and grace.
Our Father, it is almost a cliche but also an eternal truth: You are better to us than we would be to ourselves. Teach us today how to live up and into the good life you desire for each of us. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
Psalm 52:8, 9 ”But I am like a flourishing olive tree in the house of God; I trust in God’s faithful love forever and ever. I will praise you forever for what you have done. In the presence of your faithful people, I will put my hope in your name, for it is good.“
