Deuteronomy 9:6 – I am Not Good.

S – Deuteronomy 9:6 “You must recognize that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land because you are good, for you are not—you are a stubborn people.”

O – God does not bless me because I am good.  I am not good.  I am stubborn.

A – Over the next few days, as I remember the death and resurrection of Jesus, I must remember who I am by nature and what God has done for me by grace.

P – Lord, I am not good!  Thank you for taking the punishment I deserve on the cross.  Thank you for giving me a “good land” by uniting me with Christ in His resurrection – by grace through faith.

Do you think your blessings are result of your goodness?  You are not good.
