New Mercies Every Morning (Weekend Devotional)

December 1, 2012 | Tags: ,

Because of the Lord’s faithful love
we do not perish,
for His mercies never end.
They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness!

Lamentations 3:22-23

In Christ Jesus, we get a fresh start every single morning. We can wake up and know God has new mercies and grace overflowing to us for that new day. The apostle Paul wrote, Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:13-14).

You don’t have to carry the weight of your past mistakes into today. As a follower of Jesus Christ, redeemed by the perfect blood of the Lamb, you have been forgiven of all your sins. “It is I who sweep away your transgressions for My own sake and remember your sins no more” (Isa. 43:25). If God doesn’t hold onto your sins, why should you?

Carry forward today and allow Jesus’ healing touch to be upon you. Ask God to help you not miss a single moment of all Jesus has for you today. He longs to show you His glory so that your heart fills with love and praise of Him.

Father,
I desire those You have given Me
to be with Me where I am.
Then they will see My glory,
which You have given Me
because You loved Me before the world’s foundation.

I made Your name known to them
and will make it known,
so the love You have loved Me with
may be in them and I may be in them.

John 17:24, 26
