Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 23

Day 236


"They even killed those who predicted

the coming of the Righteous One."

Acts 7:52

My child, there is none righteous but one. I am the Righteous One, the God who longs to give My goodness to every person I've created. Those who accept Me and follow Me, I will clothe with My righteousness, just as I have done for you. No longer is there a barrier between you and heaven's gates. Our relationship, My child, is based on My righteousness—and your acceptance of it. I'm so glad you're My child!

Through the years people have tried to tarnish Your name—and the names of those who knew You. But You are the Righteous One, Lord. You are the only One worthy enough to be called "Good." Next to You, Lord, my goodness is like muddy water. Thank You for accepting me as I am.


God is not so concerned about whether we fall. . .but whether we get up again.
