Wednesday 14th November
“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 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.’ The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
God’s loving kindnesses and compassions are new every morning!
If this was not true, we would live in depression most days of our lives. We would constantly wonder if God would strike us down today. We would hesitate to come to him in prayer, believing that he didn’t really want to see us; we would cower away from him, covered in guilt; we would think of him only as a hard and angry judge whose laws had been offended.
But every morning when you get up, remember that God’s lovingkindness and compassion toward you are new and fresh today. God is ready to meet with you and renew you spiritually and cleanse you. You are his son or daughter. You may have offended him deeply, but you are still his child and he wants to renew the closeness of your walk with him.
God is reminding you today that whatever you wake up to, you can “hope in Him”. If you will once again “wait for him” and “seek him”,you will once again experience his goodness.
