God is gracious. It is all God, through his son Jesus, and not anything I do. God gives His grace and mercy. That is stunning since we do not deserve it.

God is in a good mood and compassionate. That is the way God is.

  • When I call out to God, he listens to me.
  • Jesus is my advocate, sitting next to God, having defeated death.
  • I have the Holy Spirit in me, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead.

God makes things right. That is just the way it is.

It is all about God and his graciousness. It has nothing to do with me.

I love Yahweh [the Lord], because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.

ESV (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Psalm 116:1–2

God is faithful and God is good. God will hear our prayers. There is no doubt about that. We can take it to the bank. We need to come in humility, desperate for mercy. God does not owe us anything.
