Fresh Mercy

Posted: 2nd January 2012 by Rob in Uncategorized

How easy it is to lose sight of God’s faithfulness when things just don’t seem to be going your way. Life is hard but God is good to those He loves and called.

Right in the middle of his lament for Judah (Lamentations 3:1-18), Jeremiah reminds us that though it may seem that God has abandoned His people, and our feelings about hard circumstances takes the drivers seat in clear reasoning, the reality is that God is faithful in goodness and mercy. We are reminded that while mercy does not come without the sharp edge of justice, we find profound hope in the certainty of His everlasting promise of fresh mercy.

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:21-24

Look for fresh mercy every day! It is there to be discovered to those who love Jesus. Let’s strive together looking in joyful hope for God’s fresh mercies every single day this year!

Have a Happy Mercy Filled New Year
