It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: Great is they faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.
Oh I just love it when I get up in the morning and it turns out to be a beautiful, sunny day, everything seems so fresh and new and it just sort of fills you with a new hope for the day. I wish I could wake up every day and feel that way and that it was sunny and beautiful but that just isn’t reality! Life is the same way in a sense; every day isn’t going to be sunny, there are rainy days, snowy days and stormy days and sometimes you just begin to wonder if you will ever see the sun again!
Where are you today? Are you facing such overwhelming struggles that you feel as though this storm will never pass? Do you feel so weighed down by the burdens you are carrying that you can’t even find the strength to look up any more? God wants you to know that His compassions will not fail, they are new every single morning so hold on to your hope in Him! Don’t allow Satan to lie to you trying to get you to believe that somehow God doesn’t care, He does care, He loves you and He is faithful to deliver you and to bring you through all that you are facing to the other side!
Do you need God’s mercies today because of things you have done? You know God still has a plan for you, right? He still believes in you and knows all of the strengths and gifts He put within you to do great things, He won’t let that go to waste if you will just allow His mercies and grace cover you today and leave the past behind so you can start fresh today! Today is a new day, fresh with no mistakes in it! Rise up, get excited, this can be your new beginning! Allow God to do a fresh work in you today! He delights in you!
If you are needing strength for your day I would like to encourage you to remember, 2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” God will show Himself mighty in your situation and in your life if you will just seek Him and glorify Him in all you do! Hold on to the words in this verse and know that He has promised to come through for you! God is faithful, so if you have been feeling as though everything is hopeless lately know that you can put all of your hope and faith in Him. The best is yet to come!
“Hope never dies where faith is strong, and faith grows strong in the presence of hope.” Chad Witmeyer
