So, how are you doing? “Better than I deserve!” Have you known anyone who responded in that way? For many such folks, it really didn’t matter what kind of day they were having. They could have had a rough morning and may have even been carrying a heavy burden of some kind. Yet, they really meant it–“Better than I deserve!” These kind of people have a positive outlook on life! They have a conscious awareness of the abundant and constant blessings of God! They have decided that life’s circumstances do not determine “how they’re doing”!
Because of the “exceedingly abundant” grace of God, we are all better than we deserve (1 Tim. 1:14). Through the ever-present and surpassing love of God, we are all better than we deserve (Rom. 8:31-39). By the limitless and overwhelming power of God “that works in us,” we are all better than we deserve (Eph. 3:20-21).
You don’t have to respond with those words, but do you believe–“I am better than I deserve”?
