“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning, great is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him.” Lamentation 3:22-24
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;” God’s love is solid no matter what is happening because it’s steadfast. It never changes. It never fluctuates with your mood. It is never far away. It is ALWAYS towards you and with you no matter what is happening in your life. You can’t escape it and you can’t do anything to earn it. Isn’t that awesome? I know it’s hard to believe for some of us because we feel like we’ve gone too far and God can’t love us anymore. Trust me friend, that is a lie you don’t want to believe because it robs you of everything God has for you. Trust God that His love is steadfast and never ceases.
“His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning,” There is no point at which God will say, “sorry, I have no more mercy for you, you used it all up!” His mercy for you is not only unending, it’s new every morning! So, when you feel like God can’t forgive you anymore because you’ve done too much wrong, try with all your might to quote this verse and call out the lie that Satan is feeding you. God can and will forgive you and pour His amazing mercy on you at any point if you repent with a sincere heart.
“great is Your faithfulness.” If steadfast love that never ceases and mercies that are new everyday AND unending aren’t enough to show you that God is faithful then I don’t know what will.
“The Lord is my portion” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in Him.” All you need is God. His love and mercy is all you need to get through every single moment of every single day of your life. Does that mean every day is wine and roses? Nope. Does that mean that you won’t stumble and fall? Nope. It means that at every moment of your life you have a choice to make: choose God’s steadfast love and unending mercy or yourself. For me, there is no option, it’s God every time.
God has so much He wants to do in your life so don’t be the barrier. Go to God, confess whatever you need to confess, ask for help and then accept His amazing love, grace, peace and mercy. He’s just waiting for you to turn around and once He sees you starting to move, He’ll swoop in and save you. He won’t always stop whatever the natural course of events is, He doesn’t say you’ll never have pain, but He does say that His love and mercy are there for you at anytime and in any situation. Grab hold of that and never let it go.
