Can I have a do over please?
“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:21-24
Did you struggle getting out of bed this morning? Maybe you woke up and wanted a do over. As you laid there, did you remember that terrible thing you said yesterday to your spouse or your kid or maybe even a friend? Oh, how you wish you could take it back.
Or maybe you struggled yesterday to believe God’s truth over man’s lies. Maybe that script in your head kicked in and it was hard to fight it. And then you wondered to yourself, will I ever change? YES!! A thousand times yes! You can change those bad habits. Every day, you get a fresh start.
How do I know this to be true? Because God said so. In our key verses for today, we learn about God’s love. The reason we aren’t consumed is because of God’s love. No matter what we face or do, God still loves us. His mercies NEVER cease. Every morning God floods you with the grace and mercy for whatever comes your way.
God is faithful. Keep pressing into Him. He will empower to overcome the lies and have self-control with your words. God is with you every step of the way and will help you become more like Him. In fact, He wants it more than you do. Rest in that amazing truth today and hope in God alone!
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your faithfulness. I am blown away by Your love and so thankful that Your mercies are new every morning. Help me to grab hold of that truth in a fresh way today. Thank You for being with me as I desire to be more like You. I love You Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
