Because of the LORD’s great Love we are not consumed,
for his Compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
Great is your Faithfulness. Lamentations 3: 22-23.
Have you ever really sat down and pondered the overwhelmingly unmerited, unwarranted, and abundant amount of God’s rich and gracious MERCY (God’s great love and compassion) that HE extends upon our lives each day? If so, it staggers the imagination, heart, and mind. The Bible teaches us that His Mercies are NEW every morning….New; brand New…never before used…right off the shelf of God’s own heart each and every new morning! An ever abundant new supply every day!
Most of God’s mercy directed towards us goes totaling unnoticed by common man. It’s much like involuntary functions of our body. We don’t always focus upon the beats of our heart or the breaths of our lungs…But, oh, how we could not survive without them! Let our heart skip a beat or we suddenly gasp for breath and we are immediately reminded of their significance and importance in our lives.
God’s mercy is like that, too. When we suddenly feel as if we are not surrounded by it, we panic. We become fearful and afraid of what might happen to us. Yet, on most days we walk around not even noticing how MERCY is walking right beside us each step of the way. God’s love and mercy have saved both you; you and me. And, His favor is upon our lives….It’s not GOD who walks away forgetting to shower us with His Mercy in times of troubles and despair…It is us who walks away forgetting that we ARE showered with His mercy continually; no matter our circumstances or situation! Mercy is new each morning!
Today, mercy is upon me much like air circulating within and through my lungs. And, it is upon you as well if you are a child of God’s. As a matter of fact, the entire world, approximately 6.5 billion, whether it believes in or doesn’t believe in God or in His existence, enjoys the blessings and benefits from God’s Mercy each and every day…Life as we know it would not, and could not, exist without or outside of God’s daily Mercy…
Let us never fail to recognize God’s new mercy upon our lives each day. Let us never forget to be grateful and thankful for our FAITHFUL, LOVING, COMPASSIONATE GOD who loves us with HIS new mercy each morning…Oh, how loving our God truly is…Let’s Praise HIM for HIS daily, new MERCY!
Remember, God Loves You!
