His Compassions Are New Every Morning

His Compassions Are New Every Morning

            "They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness." (Lam 3:23)

It makes me smile when I think of God's faithfulness and His daily abidance. God is faithful and He keeps His promises. Every morning is new. When we wake up in the morning to start a new day, we can be sure that God is there for us. What a blessed thought!

It does not matter what we have gone through the day before. We might have experienced affliction or even depression. As we remember His faithfulness and loving kindness, we turn to God for His mercy and help. This hope is an important turning point, leading us to help, comfort, and strength from Him. Our faith grows through our own personal experiences and encounters with Him.

            “It is good for a man to bear the yoke in his youth. Let him sit alone and keep silent, for the Lord has laid it on him.” (Lam 3: 27, 28)

Suffering is good for us because it teaches us to patiently wait on the Lord as the old saints did in the Bible. His compassions are new every morning and we shall be lifted, if we hope and turn to Him.

Our Lord Jesus Christ promised that "He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst" (Jn 6:35).

            " ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive.” (Jn 7:37-39)

To be filled with the Holy Spirit is to fully submit to God’s Spirit and allow Him to guide our daily lives. We will have faith and the power of God to resist sin and bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit. That is the experience of the freshness of living water flowing out of our hearts.

This living water is fresh everyday, cleansing us of all filth. Our spirituality is thus renewed day by day—by the compassions of God, for “they are new every morning.” Great is His faithfulness!

            Questions for reflection:

            What are some troubles you feel recently?

            Have you turned to God to seek the refreshment of His mercies and the sweetness of the living water He promised to us?
