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.

Daily D – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
