“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace, that he lavished on us.” Ephesians 1:7-8
I feel an outpouring of love when I read that my heavenly Father has lavished on us the riches of His grace and that He is able to do “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Eph. 3:20). I’m so grateful that our God is not a stingy God who begrudgingly dishes out His blessings in small portions. Rather, He is the God who pours out forgiveness, and He daily crowns us “with lovingkindness and tender mercies” (Ps. 103:4).
At times we think God hasn’t provided for us as we would like. But if He never did anything more than forgive our sins and guarantee heaven for us, He has already been abundantly generous! So today, let’s rejoice in our generous God.
