Tuesday Morning Prayer March 27, 2007

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
The Lord is on my side as my helper;
I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. (Psalm 118:6-7)

Oh Lord, grant us faith to believe this magnificent truth: that You are for us.  How often we allow guilt and condemnation to hinder our fellowship with You, believing that You are angry with us and that we can never please You.  In the flesh, we cannot please You; we are condemned.  But Christ offered Himself as our substitute, so that Your wrath could be removed from us and we could approach You boldly, with confidence.  If not for the shed blood of Christ, we could never say that You are on our side.  But because of the atonement You have made at the Cross, we can live daily in the confidence that the Creator of the universe is on our side.  You are our helper.  Grant that we would marvel at the Cross this day, Lord, which has turned us from Your enemy to Your beloved.
