God's Mercies Are New Every Morning

Today we embrace a new day, and though we remain in the midst of this virus pandemic, where fear and uncertainty has taken hold of so many, we as believers can come together as witnesses for Christ, professing what we already know and believe. This is where “the rubber meets the road “—where we find where our faith is rooted and tested. We know fear is from the enemy, for God does not give us a spirit of fear. 2 Timothy 1:7, “[For] God did not give us a spirit [or the Spirit] that makes us afraid [timid] but a spirit [or the Spirit] of power and love and self-control [self-discipline; or good judgment]. “

Like many other past events that our country and world have faced, God was in the midst of each one; fully aware and fully at work, bringing about His plans and purposes. We already know God brings about or allows everything for purpose -- nothing is wasted. Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”. As we encounter each new day, we would be wise to pause and take account of what we see unfolding before us and what God may be doing to reach and teach us in the midst of our current event. Is it to increase our faith? Learn to rely on God more and man less? Loosen the grip on worldly possessions and focus more on the eternal treasures that Heaven holds for the believer?

With the dawning of each day, God’s mercies are new. Lamentations 3:23 “they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness”. In verse 22 it reminds us of the Lord’s loving kindnesses that never cease and His compassions that never fail. God, who is the same yesterday, is the same today. His love, mercy and faithfulness never change. That is where our hope lies. In these days of uncertainties, whether the virus pandemic we face today or another event of tomorrow, one thing will never change: the steadfastness of God’s love, mercy, strength and faithfulness to those who place their hope and trust in Him alone. He is our anchor in the midst of the storms of life.
