His Mercies Are New

get-attachment (31)

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:22-23

There are many times I go to bed at night, counting the failures of the day. I should have done this. I didn’t do that. Ugh I did this again. Before I know it, I have worked myself up to a frenzy of failure anxiety, unable to sleep. Instead of resting in God’s Grace.

He knows we are going to mess up, it is no surprise to him. But thanks to the sacrifice of his son, his mercy and grace is never ending! He still loves me so!

I have been living on this verse for a while now:

1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”


I am a sinner, I mess up! But I confess to the Lord and just like that, through the Blood of Jesus, my slate is wiped clean. White as snow.


 

Instead of focusing on your failures, focus on his mercy and what Christ has done for you. When we focus on all the wrongs we did for the day, we are putting the focus on us, when it should be on Jesus and what he has done for us!

Rest in his mercy and grace, and practice this to others!

Some inspiration:

“And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” –Matthew 6:12

“For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.” –Matthew 6:14-15.

“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. “–Romans 5:8

2 Corinthians 12:8-9
“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

Be Blessed!
