If you are reading this, I know at least one thing about you – you woke up today! Maybe early in the morning, later or in the afternoon (no judgement here), you woke up. And God’s mercies will begin afresh for you!
Jesus taught us to pray that the Father would provide “our daily bread”. God told us that “His mercies begin afresh every morning.” Day after day, we are confronted with life. It is such a daily thing. From our perspective, some of it good and some of it bad. But God, in His infinite wisdom, asked us to pray daily for His provision and He daily resets His mercy.
I often remember the words of Zig Ziglar as he encouraged us to realize that yesterday really ended last night and that today was a brand new day. This great motivational speaker learned and passed on to others the truth that we need to leave the past behind and search for God’s leading and blessing today. It is ours for the taking!
Every day God hits the refresh button of mercies on our lives. Beyond the temporal circumstances, health concerns, virtual schooling, social distancing, riots, grief, the sin in us and around us, His everlasting love and continual mercy will carry us through.
Taking on a new day could be a welcomed task for us or it might be a fear filled endeavor. Let’s go forward in His strength and not just our own, with His blessing and enjoying His mercies. We can do this…with His help!
