The Bible says that God’s mercies are new each morning. What does that really mean?
New York Timesran a article called “Googling for God.” In this writing, author Seth Stephens-Davidowitz explores trends in search data related to questions people pose about God. He finds the number one God-related question people ask on Google is, “Who created God?” Not surprisingly, number two is “Why does God allow suffering?” Most interesting and alarming was that number three was “Why does God hate me?”
Let’s be clear, God does not hate anyone and gives grace, mercy, and blessings to those who know Him as Lord and Savior.
Lamentations 3:22-23 “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 Love of Jesus Never Ceases -
God’s Love is not just here today but is also here tomorrow. His Love is Everlasting. God may hate sin but He does not hate people. The Bible is clear God hates, really hates sin a lot, any sin, He does not hate people, He forgives sins. God is Love! Why did He send Jesus, John 3:16 indicates “God So loves the world that He gave His Son to die for our sins”.
The Mercies of Jesus Never End -
His Mercies are new each morning. God knows what we need day to day, Mercy throughout the day and night, being new and fresh starting each day. God commands us to give Mercy to others as He gives Mercy. Luke 6:36 “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
2nd Samuel 24:14 King David a man after God’s on heart said “I am in deep distress. Let us fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great; but do not let me fall into human hands.”
God’s mercy is often analogous to compassion. It sometimes means not giving us what we might deserve from doing wrong, but giving us a break and giving us His Mercy which is Greater than anything.
Forgive our sins and transgressions and hear our prayers offered to You the All Knowing and Caring God, our only God.
Today is full of goodness but may also have its great challenges that bring too much stress, doubt, fear, sickness, weakness, worry, and hurt, insecurities, even a feeling of hopelessness sometimes.
Our Gracious God, give us a break and show us your unfailing Faithfulness and Compassion. Take away our burdens or give us Strength to deal with them and defeat them, but our hearts desire is You handle them for us. We thank You for Your Love, Grace and Mercy in all things. Bless us this day, our family and friends and even our enemies. Give us what we need and teach us to glorify and honor You. We ask a special blessing this day because we know your mercy is new every morning. May we Lord Jesus walk in the Light with You.
In Jesus Name,
