FIRE SCRIPTURE: Lamentation 3:22-23
MEMORY VERSE: “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” – Psalms 20:7
As you wake up every morning, the first things that rush to your mind are the burdens and the tasks of the day, the pains you feel physically, the sins you committed, the bills you have to pay, relationship problems that we experience. All these feelings ‘gnaw at our hearts’. If we are not careful enough, it determines our mood for the day. We could end up depressed throughout the day, or pray about it and handover everything to God. It all depends on what we want to do.
We often trust in what we can do, and not what our Almighty God can do for us. After the sleep we had, totally unaware of what happened through the night, we immediately wake up with a load of worries and burdens. Naturally, our minds are not prone to follow the command of our Lord, to set our minds on things above where Jesus is (Colossians 3:1-4). God never wants us to carry our burdens, He does not want us to rely on our abilities; these anxieties bring unhealthy, unhelpful and unbiblical burdens of life.
We believe in the sovereign power of God but forget that it applies to us and also our circumstance but our flesh blinds us from seeing this truth and believing in it. That the power of God is ours through Christ (Ephesians 1:19-20) and his mercies are new every morning. An author once said “Anxiety comes when we look at our circumstances, and then at our ability, but faith comes when we look at our circumstances and then at God’s ability.”
In Christ, the steadfast love of God will never end. His mercies will never come to an end. They will be new every morning, and He is always faithful to bring them to you. If you love Him and your trust is in Him, then your hope in Him should be the strongest for His unbelievable promises. His mercies are new every morning because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed for his compassions fail not. God’s love for us abides even in times of trouble. He never stops loving us. His love consists of grace, mercy, goodness, forgiveness, compassion and faithfulness. His compassion is withholding a just punishment so in spite of all our anxieties and sinful heart, we should remember that His compassion fail not. We should always come to Him with a repentant heart and He will shower His love upon us, which is our ray of hope through dark cloud. The dawning of a new morning could be seen as a symbol of God’s light breaking through the darkness and His mercy overcoming our troubles. When God demonstrates His mercies, gloom and anxiety must flee. The mercies of God comes to us via a multitude of manifestations. Think of this!!!
GOD’S MERCY IS FRESH AND NEW EVERY MORNING.
The mercies of God will endure forever in your life.
