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 3:22-23
New Mercies Every Morning
The word new means “to appear for the first time” according to Dictionary.com. We see new things everyday: new clothes or something else that is newly purchased, a new house, a new vehicle, a new friend, a new baby, and many more new things. Every day we are given a new day and every year is a new year. God is a God of new beginnings. He gave us a new day every morning so we can wake up and face the day with confidence knowing that He is right by our side. This verse tells us that His mercies are new every single morning. His compassion never ends. He is faithful to those who love Him!
He gives us 365 days of His mercies, and then, when those days are over, He gives us another new year. So, delight yourself in His new beginnings and know that even though it is a new year, He is the same God yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
A Prayer to Remember
You are the God of new beginnings. You gave me a new beginning when you saved me and you will pick me up time and time again. Help me to trust you even more in this new year. Amen.
