May the Lord be gracious to you

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

12042856_10153210701121313_2672634598643878677_nI pray that the Lord will be gracious to you. What does it mean to be gracious to you?  The primary meaning for the word gracious is to be kind and good.  This is exactly what God wants to be to us, KIND and GOOD!

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good.

So the Lord wants to be gracious to you. He wants to be kind and good, but He also wants to be merciful and give favour to you and me. A unique quality of being gracious is that it means to be approachable.  In God’s graciousness to you, He wants you to know that He is approachable and there for you. May the Lord be gracious to you.
