Daily devotional: Right with God by faith

Scripture
For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."
Romans 1:17 NIV

Observation
Praise be to God that His plan to make us right in His sight does not rely on our works or on how perfectly we keep the law. Rather, this right standing with God relies on our faith in the God of the universe! And He has given us an amazing display of His power through all of His creation and His mighty deeds throughout the history of the world and especially through Jesus Christ! He is worthy of our faith!

Application
Praise God for making me righteous, not by how well I can keep the law or do good works, but rather because of my faith in Him through Jesus Christ.

Prayer
Lord, I do praise You! You are wonderful and most excellent, worthy of all praise. I worship You with a thankful heart for Your plan of salvation. I rest in You and trust You. Please live and love and lead through me, today and always. I love You!
