Compassions New Every Morning and Mercies Never Failing

During my walk this morning, my thoughts were marching right along with my steps.  I’d prayed about many things, and now different concerns were coming to mind.  Not unlike the day before, and the day before that.

Life is a moment by moment on-going process, and the Christian’s walk is a moment by moment choice to take God at His Word. 

Whether today’s struggle is with laundry, or paying the bills, or my waistline, or something much more serious--no matter what today’s struggles--chances are tomorrow will have more concerns and struggles, and maybe many of the same.  There’s nothing new about that.  But, praise God, His compassions are new every morning.

As a Christian, a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and a child of God, I can trust God.  He is faithful.  I can count on Him for never failing mercy.   I need to reach out to Him and take advantage of all that He has provided.

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 (KJV)

His compassions are new every morning because we need a fresh supply every day.  Like the manna in the desert, God knows it’s a daily necessity for His children.  He understands our hearts, and our minds, and all our concerns and our needs, great and small.

Moment by moment, step by step, He is faithful.  Walk with Him.

Great is thy Faithfulness by William M. Runyan is a beautiful hymn made popular in years past by the Billy Graham crusades.   I hope you’ll enjoy reading this faith-filled affirmation of God’s faithfulness. 

“Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,

There is no shadow of turning with Thee;

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not

As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

“Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!“

  Morning by morning new mercies I see;

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—

  “Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,

Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
