In the book of Lamentations, we find the people of Israel engulfed in despair. Their future appears to be without hope. Overtaken and headed for the unknown, sorrow seems to be the only thing left to express. Yet, in the midst of the storm, a ray of truth beams brightly through the darkness, as this verse testifies.
Like the Israelites, you and I can find ourselves held captive by overwhelming circumstances, with our physical resources exhausted and our plans in ruins. Know this; “through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.”
God’s love, goodness, forgiveness, and faithfulness are fresh this and every morning. His compassion toward you has no limits, neither by time nor amount of need.
We live in a world filled with broken promises and disappointment, a world filled with people who are unfaithful, including ourselves. Isn’t it satisfying to know that we are never without the faithful mercies and compassions of our God? Today, let’s take a moment to thank Him and exclaim, “Great is Your faithfulness!”
