Day By Day by Grace

Hoekstra’s Day by Day by Grace (September 28th)

(2 Chronicles 34:26-27)

And as for the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the LORD, so shall ye say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel concerning the words which thou hast heard Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the LORD.

Ps.51:17> The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Ps.86:5 > For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

Dear Lord, I confess that I have not always responded in humility before Your word. I thank You for Your forgiving grace. Yet, even more, I hunger for Your transforming grace. Shape my heart into a tender vessel that will meekly receive Your holy word, day by day, for Your honor and glory, Amen.
