Yes! We are extremely blessed, because God’s mercy is new every morning! We can start each day with a clean slate with no traces of yesterday. His mercies are new each and every day. I don’t know about you, but that is good news.
Because of God’s steadfast, unconditional, unwavering love, we don’t have to drown in our despair. When we end the day feeling downcast and worn out, and wondering if the morning will be any different, we have great hope because his grace and mercy toward us are always moving in strength – regardless of how well we have done. We can trust him to carry us in the deepest of valley’s, of brokenness, and despair.
I am deeply grateful for this mercy that is new every morning, every moment and every day.
Let his grace and love captivate your heart as you seek him each day.
Thank You, precious Savior, that Your love is steadfast. Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning. Thank You for Your great faithfulness, not only to me but to all Your people from the first day of creation. When I am tempted to become depressed and distressed, may I choose to gaze on You. May I remember that You are my portion. May I hope in Your unceasing love, amen
Have you ever found yourself pleading with God to show you what to do? How to please and serve Him…but not knowing how?
Well, here is a good place to start: Micah 6:8, we need to handle those around us justly — practicing patience and dealing with others in fairness, without partiality. We need to practice mercy — blessing others in need with what they don’t deserve but so greatly need. We need to walk humbly with our God.
It’s interesting to note that although there is action involved, each of those requirements starts with a soft and loving heart. We won’t act justly if we harbor resentment or hate. We won’t show kindness and mercy if we seek to serve ourselves. And a prideful heart will always walk ahead of God. Finding God’s will for your life is really pretty simple. He wants all of your heart. He wants a surrendered life.
Maybe all God is asking of us is to stand for what is right … to choose kindness … and to walk closely to Him, submitting our will daily.
As for me, I want to embrace all that God has for me, and that means obeying what He’s already shown me.
I hope God’s Word encourages you today. Maybe it really is this simple. Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly with God. Now, the choice is yours.
Father, please make of me what you will. As you fashion me, please bless me as I seek to be a person of justice, mercy, and humility. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
