If it’s new every morning, it can never grow old. Ah, the freshness of God!
Text for Today – Lamentations 3:22-23 – 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.
“New every morning.” What a wonderful thought! He Whose mercies endure forever and are never failing causes us to awake to each new day with a whole new set of compassions for us. Oh, what a wonderful God Who loves us so much that He never offers us day-old compassions, but always new ones fresh for the day to which we awaken. It is like the manna that rained down for Israel while they were in the wilderness. God sent sufficient supply of manna that they did not have to gather enough for two days (except for the Sabbath) because they were worried about there not being sufficient supply for tomorrow. When tomorrow came, there was a fresh supply of manna. Well, my friend, when your tomorrow comes, there will be an absolutely fresh supply of the compassions of the Lord for you. They (His compassions) are new every morning.
And they are not new every morning by measure or in some limited supply. His compassions with which He daily supplies us are like His very nature of supply; always more than enough from our El Shaddai, the God Who is more than enough. Our God is a timeless God, a now God, a forever God, an eternal God. Think about this. It’s morning somewhere all the time on the earth. Therefore, at any time in your life, it is morning somewhere, so you can count on His compassions manifest toward you being new. They are never used or left-over, they are not passed on unused from one time zone to another, or one day to the next.
Somewhere on the earth it is wake-up time right now; somewhere it is getting-up time this very moment. What are you facing right now? Face it knowing His compassions are new to you at this very moment. With God, it’s always wake-up time; not for Him, but for those of us who sleep and slumber. And whenever you wake up, His compassions are awaiting you, new and fresh, and never ending. Oh, rejoice with me today, saints, that His mercies endure forever, that His compassions are new every morning, and that His love never fails.
