New Every Morning

26 05 2010

“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 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 3:21-23

I love this insight into God’s heart. After a particularly trying day, these words are especially refreshing. His compassion is new every morning. It never runs out. No matter how much grace we draw on today, there will be an inexhaustible, unquenchable supply of it available tomorrow. God’s love is always on “full”. It is always there, always inviting, always reaching out to touch our hearts and shape our souls. He stands ever ready to flood our lives with hope, peace, joy, and power. No matter what today holds, no matter how dark the night, no matter how much we have dipped into the well of His mercy, the new dawn will reveal the faithfulness of God. The morning sun will shine with His glory and open up new possibilities for us to see Him at work.

My Jesus Resolution today is to embrace the hope, love, compassion, and faithfulness God has stored up for me. It is today’s gift. I want to use it well and share it openheartedly. I will revel in what it teaches me about my Father. I am going to let it soak into every minute. I am not going to worry about using it all up. Tomorrow He will reveal His fullness to me all over again.

The unchanging God who is ever new. You’re right… it’s a beautiful concept.
