"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
What a testimony! TO know that God's love & mercy is abundant, constant, and everlasting... it's new every morning! What a gift! What a faithful God!
There was a time in Israel's history when they didn't know if they'd survive. They'd just been released from slavery in Egypt. God had done mighty & amazing things and they were suddenly free. but that freedom led them tot he desert, where water & food seemed scarce. When they complained to Moses (and to God!), God gave them a gift: manna. Daily food. God gave one day's supply at a time. No saving. No hoarding. Just enough for the day (anything extra would spoil!). And they got a double share for the weekend (which somehow didn't spoil!). Every new morning there was a supply of manna waiting. It never ran out. It supplied their needs until they entered the Promised Land and could farm & raise crops on their own.
We often get worried about things/circumstances/challenges beyond our control. In the midst of change (new move, job, church, community, lifestyle, etc.), it's tempting to worry or become distressed. But God's steadfast love & mercy endures. Every new day a new supply comes to us. Every day. God's faithfulness is great, indeed! So we can stop worrying. Stop fearing. Stop stressing. Because God's love & mercy is as steady as each new day.
Thank you, Lord, for your great faithfulness! You have given me all that I need for life, love & joy. Create in me a heart that recognizes, embraces, and celebrates that daily faithfulness. AMEN!
