Heavenly Father, thank You that like Abraham I have been justified by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, my God and my Saviour. Thank You that I am accepted in Christ and have been declared righteous - not because of what I have done, but because of trusting in what Christ did on the cross.. for me. May my life be a living testimony to the truth of the glorious gospel of Christ - and it is in His name that I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that my salvation does not depend on what I have done but one what I believe. Thank You that I am not saved by what I do, but by what Christ has done on my account. Thank You that I am saved by grace through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. May I also live every day of my life by grace through faith.. and may my prideful Self remains nailed to the cross, as the indwelling life of Christ works through me, to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, how I praise and thank You that You have credited me with Christ's righteousness by faith in His finished work. I confess that all my works are as filthy rags in Your pure eyes and there is nothing that I could do to warrant the imputed righteousness of Christ. Thank You that my salvation does not rely on my good works nor my ability to keep rules and regulations.. but is dependent on faith alone in Christ alone - and that by faith in His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection I have been credited as righteous through time and into eternity.. Help me I pray to walk in spirit and truth to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that we are justified in Your eyes by grace through faith in Christ, and that as we grow in grace and in a knowledge of Him, we are being sanctified day by day and being changed into the image and likeness of Christ.. as we die to self and live for Him. Thank You that salvation is not a complicated issue but simply a matter of faith in Your word - believing Your the truth of Scripture and looking to Jesus - the true and living Word, Who died and rose again so that all who believe on Him would not perish but have everlasting life. We rejoice with Abraham, David and all the saints, who have gone before us, for we are all blessed beyond measure - praise Your holy name, AMEN.

“Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,”

Source: Verse of the day for Romans 4:6

Heavenly Father, thank You for the truth in Romans that we are not justified by when we do, but in Whom we believe. Thank You that I am not justified by works of the Law but by faith in Christ. Thank You for what HE did for me on the cross, when He bore my sins and carried my iniquity on His sinless shoulders. Thank You that ALL my lawless deeds have been forgiven - past present and future and that by faith in Him I am born anew (initial justification) and have been placed into eternal union with Christ Jesus my Saviour and am positionally justified. Keep me from thinking that works of the Law are required for my initial salvation or my ongoing sanctification. Thank You that Your grace is sufficient and I pray that I may work the works of God, that You have prepared for me to do in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit and for your eternal praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.

Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.”

Thank You for the wonderful examples throughout Your Word, that repeatedly demonstrate that salvation is through faith in the death and resurrection of Christ.. and that I am imputed with Him righteousness and indwelt by His Spirit, by grace through faith. May the new resurrection life of CHrist in me glorify You.. in thought word and deed - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.”
