Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 19 August 2019 – REPAIRING GRACE
For it is evident that our Lord arose from Judah.
Recommended Reading: Genesis 44:18-34
Yet to our astonishment, Judah helped reunite his family (Genesis 44:18-34) and became the father of the tribe of Israel through whom the Messiah came (Genesis 49:10). We see some of the despicable names in Genesis 38 show up again in Matthew 1 in the genealogy of Christ.
In the book of Revelation, Jesus is called the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” (Revelation 5:5).
This shows that God can turn any family’s shame into a future. God’s grace can mend a broken situation, redeem a broken person, answer forbearing prayers, and turn a loss into a legacy. Don’t give up on yourself or a loved one.
It is no secret what God can do.
He doles out mercy with individual kindness. He bestows grace upon grace upon grace, not just for everybody, but for each and every one.
