Further up and further in: Hosea 1-3
1 Peter 2:10 – Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received God’s mercy, but now you have God’s mercy.
Lord God, it is so good be your child and a member of your family. As your adopted child, I have access to all the good that you have for me. You have opened the storeroom of your grace and mercy to me. I am not on the outside looking in any more. I’m your child. I’m your bride. I’m yours! You’ve been merciful to me. Help me to live in the joy and freedom that comes because I am yours. Amen.
