Pray Today: Day 27, Sovereign Mercy


Read & Consider


Read Exodus 33.19

Consider

What an interesting verse! Moses has just asked God to show him His glory, and what does God do? He shows him His goodness! The Bible tells us that God is the source of all good (James 1:17), that God works in all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28), and to give thanks for God’s goodness (Psalm 106:1). Goodness is a part of God’s identity; it is an attribute he communicates to us. God’s goodness is not tethered to our feelings or circumstances; it is a reality in every stage of the journey. In the same way the Lord showed Moses his identity, He can show you who He is today – good, kind, merciful, compassionate and gracious.
