A few days after the time change, the sky was especially beautiful, bursting forth with the message penned by the prophet Jeremiah:
“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23, NASB)
Stepping out onto the back deck, I snapped a few photos, and found myself humming an old song. It’s funny how those come back to memory, especially when they are Scripture and truth:
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end.
They are new ev’ry morning, new ev’ry morning,
Great is Thy faithfulness, O Lord,
Great is Thy faithfulness.”
There is much promise and hope to be found in those two verses. The Lord’s lovingkindnesses toward His people will never cease. His compassions will never fail to be extended toward us. His mercies are new every morning. His faithfulness is great towards us.
But only when I stepped back out to take yet another photo, because the color was only getting increasingly spectacular, did something hit me.
His mercies are new and specific for each day. It’s when the day is a challenge, or the bottom falls out, that we come to realize our God has always been, always is, and always will be faithful.
Don’t miss the early morning skies!
May we never take for granted that His mercies are NEW every single morning!
“How We Prepare Him Room” is a beautiful post by Natalie Ogbourne in both words and photos. “Prepare him room isn’t an addition. It’s a practice and a posture. It’s an invitation.” You can read her post HERE.
