It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
Lamentation 3:22 (KJV)
What a joy to know that God’s lovingkindness towards us is never failing, never ending even when we fail to see and appreciate it as we should. The scripture says they never fail rather they are new every morning. That is to say for every new day in this New Year there is a new level of kindness and God’s tender mercies.
Our text in the NIV translation of the bible says, it is “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.” If you look at the year 2020 from the global pandemic, economic instability amongst other global and local issues you’ll know without a doubt that it took the unfailing love of God to preserve, protect and provide for you. The only reason why we are here today in our right minds and not consumed is the fact that God’s love was poured on us without measure.
Travis Greene was right in his song Made A Way: “Now we’re here looking back on where we’ve come from, because of you and nothing we’ve done to deserve the love and mercy you’ve shown but your grace was strong enough to pick us up.” And we’re standing here only because you made a way.
My declaration and confession: “Today I declare that the steadfast love of the Lord and His mercies will never fail in my life”.
Ignite Thought: God’s mercies are endless even in our failures and shortcomings.
