New Every Morning

NEW EVERY MORNING  Is God’s love really enough? http://thelife.com/DailyDevotions/new-every-morning #LifeDevo
“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 3:22-24
ID-10080832As the sun peeks through the morning clouds, you may be dealing with difficult challenges. Getting those toes to move forward can be hard. The author of Lamentations felt overwhelmed with life as he tried to challenge people to change. Things were a mess for a long time, but as he cried out to God, he was able to come to the conclusion that because of the Lord’s great love, we don’t have to be overwhelmed and consumed.
That’s why I love the verse above.
Our life may look bleak, and we can find ourselves feeling like there are no answers to be found. The challenges of our finances, relationships, and family may feel like an overstretched rubber band about to snap. But we have hope! God’s never ending love is expressed by His compassion and faithfulness to us daily. God’s love is the real deal, unbreakable, and unstoppable.
When we take our eyes off God’s faithfulness and try to do things in our own strength, we become consumed. We may find ourselves making unwise choices. His portion empowers a new start each day as our firm foundation. 1 John 4:8 says that “God is Love,” so it is the Lord Himself loving us that is our portion; He keeps us moving ahead, trusting Him to work in and through us.
Today, choose to believe, as Frederick Martin Lehman’s hymn ‘The Love of God’ says, “God’s love, so sure, shall still endure, All measureless and strong; Redeeming grace to Adam’s race.”
