“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
Our verse for today comes out of the Book of Lamentations. As the book's name implies, it is filled with words written at a very difficult time in the life of Jeremiah the prophet and for the city of Jerusalem. We believe though that what he wrote is true for our lives because he was writing about God and God is the same today as He was then. God's love and His feeling of compassion for us are great and they do not fail. We're thinking especially today of the truth that God's compassions are new every morning. We trust that you were aware yesterday of God's compassion and love for you and are aware of them again today. Our verse says they are new every morning. God renews His love for you today and He'll do that again tomorrow and it will never fail or come to an end.
