New Mercies

His Mercies are new every morning!

This verse is my verse these weeks. His mercies are new every morning.

Godís merciesÖ.Godís tenderness to us is known, it is all through the pages of the Bible. The life of Jesus is the example. God cares for us. Think about that. The God who created the universe and all that is in it, who made you and me, loves you! (and me) I know you tell others about that every day. I do too. But personally, deep in our hearts we harbor mis-trust, past hurts and brokenness. Brokenness we donít want anyone to know.

Godís mercies are new. These arenít the old stale mercies. mercies are new, fresh. These arenít bargain basement, half price, discounted mercies. These are new. These shoes have not been out of the box. They have never been worn. They are waiting for you, for you to place your feet in them. They have been made just for you, they are a perfect fit.

Godís mercies are new every morning! These mercies are new for today. These arenít the mercies from last year or last week. These are the mercies God has given you for today: with today in mind; with the trial you have this morning; the jobs you have this afternoon; the meetings you have this evening; the visiting; the counseling; the administration of your tasks. Godís mercies are new. I wonder is your walk with Jesus joyful? Or drudgery? Adventure? or funeral procession?

Last week I was deep in worship on Monday morning. The mercies were new. By Tuesday there was a different life situation for me and my family. I needed new mercies. In talking and praying with people far wiser than me, this verse was read. I needed these new mercies. I need them today. I need Godís mercy. You know what? You do too.
So stop for a moment. Think about thisÖGodís mercies are new every morning.

Enjoy the mercies of the Lord!
