“It Is ONLY The Lord’s Mercies!”

new mercies everyday
by Dona Hake
Lamentations 3:22-23 (TLB)


“His compassion never ends. It is only the Lord’s mercies that have kept us from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; His loving-kindness begins afresh each day.”
As you begin your day, do you remember to thank Him for His mercies? Do you remind yourself that His mercies are specifically new just for you each morning? Oh that we would remind ourselves of how He rescued us from a life a destruction. I think at times, and wonder where I would be without Him for I know that He rescued me from a life of confusion, wrong choices, and deception. How about you?
Today I want you to meditate on this scripture from Lamentations, and really read it keeping in mind that you are on God’s mind continually, and He desires for you to understand how much He loves you, and His mercies are ever toward you. I would also like to share an interesting quote I found by John Bunyan.
“Since God has mercies to give, and He intends
to give them to us, those mercies are not broken
pieces or someone else’s leftovers….God has bags
that were never untied, never opened up, but set
aside through a thousand generations
for those who hope in His mercy.”
Let us meditate upon His mercies that are there for us now, and will be yours to find and hope for every day you live on this earth!

Psalm 89:1 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever:
with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
