New Day Clean Slate


Lamentations 3:22-23
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.

Yes! We are immeasurably blessed! God’s mercy is new every morning and you will know it when you meet with Him each new day.

You will know the slate is clean, with no traces remaining of yesterday. A fresh clean slate holds the promise of a better day to come. The beginning of a brand new day offers a fresh start where you will know there are new beginnings with new opportunities and new horizons.

God's love is also new every morning. Mercy is often translated in the Bible as lovingkindness, and isn’t that the best kind of love? We have a God whose love is patient and kind and His mercy is new and easy to be found when you meet with Him every morning of each new day. His love is full of compassion and His mercy demonstrates His unending love to us.

There have been times when I had a miserable day when I couldn’t wait to just go on to bed knowing that when I woke up the next morning, a new day waited for me. I wanted a new day to do life better.

The amazing truth is that our God’s mercy is available every moment. If I mess up in the morning or in the middle of an afternoon, I can start anew in that exact moment I say, Lord, I’m sorry, I need to hit the refresh button on this day and start again in a place of new mercy.

I am deeply grateful for this mercy that is new every morning, every moment and every day.
