Every Morning

“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.”
Lamentations 3:22–23

Every morning you wake up, God’s mercy and love are available.  Every morning you wake up, you can make a deal with God, and He will take you up on it.  My father often told his congregation that all that matters with God is from now on.  God is willing to erase your past and start over, if you can believe it.
Jesus said that everyone who asks, receives, and everyone who seeks, finds, and to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.  He knew that God’s mercies are “new every morning” for anyone who is willing to start over and do what is right.  Let us gladly take advantage of God’s promise so that whoever admits that he has done wrong and turns from his wrong–doing will receive mercy (Prov. 28:13)!
