His Mercies are New Every Morning


In the book of Lamentations, in the 3rd chapter, verses 22 and 23, it says “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.  They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness”.

This is one the greatest promises in all of the bible.  It speaks so much of God’s character and gives us such hope.  If not for God’s mercy, we would fail miserably.  His compassion and love for us is never-ending.  We can start fresh every morning and He is faithful to forgive us and give us the grace to go on.  He is faithful even when we’re not.  Actually, we can start over at any time, we can repent in an instant but I love the picture of starting fresh every morning.  We can have the attitude, “it’s a new day, I can leave the past behind and start again”.  That is why my favorite time of day to spend time with God and His word is the morning.  Another advantage of starting off my day with the Lord is it prepares me to better reflect Christ in my heart and attitude throughout the day.
