“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)
Because of God’s Faithfulness, we receive a new batch of mercies each day! And, according to Lamentations 3:22-23, we will never run out of these blessings since they are available when we wake up every morning! God’s generosity is boundless and everlasting. Today’s short devotion speaks of one of the enormous benefits of belonging to such a compassionate God. New Mercies are God sends.
I have a difficult time wrapping my mind around the many bonuses you get from knowing the Lord intimately. Every day He overwhelms me with a fresh dose of forgiveness and understanding that enters into my mind and heart. I don’t have to regret not using yesterday’s mercies, nor save any leftovers for tomorrow. Why? Because I will get brand-new ones today and all the days of my life!
God’s Grace and Compassion sustain me as I go about my day. If you are a believer, He does the same for you as well! Although this short devotion highlights verses 22 and 23 of Lamentations 3, the entire chapter speaks of the value of belonging to such a God! For example, He is kind to those who look for Him and wait for His direction and action (vs. 25).
Prayer: Dear God, Thank You for Your Love, Faithfulness, and the many fringe benefits You provide every day.
