“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22)
It is a rare soul indeed who can make it through just one day without blowing it some how. Some thoughtless word, some heartless action, some selfish deed, some dark and wicked thought – you know what I mean. Just look back over yesterday and you see the trail of debris.
But that was yesterday. You weren’t struck dead by lightning, and you weren’t visited by the Angel of Death as you slept last night. You woke up once again to yet another day.
A new day.
A new day filled with a fresh supply of new mercies and compassions from the Lord. A new day filled with the steadfast, unfailing love of God for YOU.
The prophet Micah asked, “Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea. (Mic 7:18-19)
Jeremiah himself tells us later on in his lamentation, “For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. (Lam 3:31-32)
Think of it this way, my traveling friend – each morning when you awake the Lord has already pushed the ultimate reboot button in heaven. Why not even now bow your head in humble reverence and deep gratefulness, thanking Him for His mercies and compassions. Then you can step into a new day, walking in the unfailing love of God.
There is true revival in this word for you today if you will only trust Him.
