“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3: 22-23)
Each day may bring us a new set of challenges to confront and to overcome. It may seem like a never-ending climb up and then a quick slide back down. Material life would seem to have a way of presenting new limits and obstructions to our freedom each day.
But we don’t have to be consumed by discouragement or fear. We have a reliable solution forever available. God’s mercies don’t have an expiration date. Yesterday’s healing and new understanding does not use up His Love or His patience. Just as God is new and fresh and full for every day, so is the measure of His Love for us. The ignorance and confusion we may feel today is simply a ready position to feel the influx of God’s cleansing kindness along with new revelations to get us back up and moving forward.
God’s compassion endures. He is Love itself and He is also Truth. His compassion is not based on pity for our sad state of affairs or sins, but it comes of His full awareness of why we are indeed lovable, good, worthy. God is faithful in His knowledge of the real man and woman that you are. He is the Father and Mother that knows you better than you know yourself and is well pleased with you.
Don’t let the morning fill you with dread or worry. Open yourself up to the new dawn of God’s Love, those merciful and beautiful rays of light and life that must wake us up to the promise of a wonderful, fruitful, and grateful day!
