On Mercy

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

I was thinking about God’s mercy today, how it is new every morning, how it doesn’t fail.

It’s interesting isn’t it, to think that God who never changes, creates new mercy every morning for you and me who cannot be the least bit dependable even hour to hour.

I wonder why yesterday’s mercy won’t do for today?  Why does He tailor make it each morning?  Is it to get you through the day you are about to walk out?  I think so.

I think it’s a promise to bring comfort to us.  You know how you sometimes get the feeling that you’ve crossed the line – seriously – and it’s too much, to many times, to bad to ask for mercy?  Well, knowing that it’s “new every morning” means that He took all your crap into consideration and then made a brand new batch of mercy to cover it all.

The minute you slip up or screw up He invites you to throw yourself at His forever underestimated mercy.

His love never fails.

    Thanks for the reminder of just how merciful our Lord is. Sometimes we just forget that He is right there waiting for us to seek Him – not only for mercy but also for loving friendship.
