"The Lord Is Gracious" Video Devotion

"The Lord Is Gracious" is the title of this KJV video devotion from Psalm 145, verses 8 and 9. When we say that the Lord is gracious, what exactly do we mean? The answer to that question has to do with the recipient (us), and not the giver. In other words, The Lord is gracious in what He gives to us because we do not deserve His gifts. There is nothing in us that makes us worthy recipients of any of the gifts He bestows upon any people, whether they are believers or not! Grace is often defined as "unmerited favor." The difficulty is that we tend to think in the opposite direction. For example, we do not find ourselves saying, "Look at God's grace in the kindness He bestowed upon us; we certainly did not deserve His help." Instead, we are more apt to think that God owes us the benefits He gives. Even more, not only does God owe us, but He is not doing a very good job.

God Bless You,
