Lamentations 3:23 — Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning (NLT).
As I prepare to head back to school this morning, I’m reminded of God’s faithfulness toward me and my family. He has never let us down, nor is He even capable of doing so. It’s not in God’s character to be a disappointment or inconsistent. He is constant and never-changing. I’m so thankful His mercies are new toward me every morning.
God gives us a fresh start every day. From the moment you wake up, He chooses to wipe the slate clean. He doesn’t hold the failures or mistakes of yesterday over your head. He believes the best about you no matter how many times you’ve shown Him your worst. When it comes to our past, I guess you could say He has selective amnesia.
I challenge you to live your life ever-mindful of God’s faithfulness—not just today but every day. His faithfulness is not contingent on yours. You will mess up again. You will let Him down many more times. You will inevitably make more wrong turns. But you can be free of remorse and rejection, knowing there is nothing you can do to change Him because He is faithful. There are fresh mercies awaiting you now. Live in them!
