We look at two situations today which illustrate how God provides. In the first story, God provides enough oil to pay all of the widow’s debts, with some left over. In the second story, God provides enough food to feed all the people, with some left over. God’s grace and forgiveness is the same way. God provides enough grace to overcome whatever our difficulty, with some left over. His forgiveness washes away all our past sins, plus those we will do in the future. God knows that we cannot find salvation alone or through good works, so he provides a way.
Take a moment to thank God for his mercy. You may find the following prayer helpful:
God our Father, you have loved us when we were unlovable. You have forgiven us when we were unforgivable. You have had mercy on us when we failed you. We thank you for your grace and mercy and love, and we glorify your name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
