New Every Morning

“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 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 3:21-23)

It may be difficult, but we must try to comprehend mercy. Why? Because God’s mercy is the platform for seeing our potential. The dictionary defines mercy as- ”a disposition to be kind and forgiving; to show undeserved compassion and kindness”. This is the approach God takes towards us… He is good, kind and forgiving! He does not give us what we deserve.

Everyday - a New Day:

One of the most wonderful gifts of mercy is a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning… everyday. To know that all of the sins and mistakes of yesterday are behind you and today is untouched by anything, but your imagination.

Every morning God offers us the opportunity to awaken our hearts to His faithfulness, rather than our frailties. None of us can go back to yesterday and change actions or words spoken. We can’t undo or retract things that have been done. Yet, we have the opportunity to start today with a renewed heart and with new decisions. That is the powerful reality of mercy! When we confess our sins and weaknesses God is faithful to forgive us (1 Jn. 1:9), wiping clean the offenses against us.

A Fresh Supply:

Determination falls short and desire alone is not enough, but we have been given a fresh supply of God’s renewable recources. In ourselves, changes are often impossible, but as God’s mercies fill our imagination so does His freedom fill our first steps. Each day God will give us a fresh supply… mercy can be applied to whatever need we may encounter. His guidance and correction will help us learn from yesterday’s mistakes and his strength will give us the ability to change and be different (1 Cor. 2:16). How wonderful to know that when I wake up I will not have exhausted the Lord’s mercies on yesterday’s battles, struggles or needs. He will have a new supply waiting for me today. 

“Great is Thy Faithfulness - Great is Thy Faithfulness. Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Thy hand has provided. Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.”
