“22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[b]
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
26 It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.”
It absolutely amazes me how steadfast the love of the Lord is for us every single day. We do not deserve the love that the Lord pours out on us, but He still does. A lot of us live selfish lives, or have done things in the past that make us undeserving of the Fathers love. We have said things, done things, or even watched things that hurt others. Even though we are unlovable, God still wants to show us mercy and grace. Like the scripture above says “His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.”
His mercies do not come to end, today is a new day, and God wants you to start over. You may have messed up yesterday, but the Lord forgives and wants you to move on. He wants you to forgive, so you can start over. When we hand our worries over to God, we open the door for God to come into our hearts. In John 14:23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” God wants us to come quietly into His presence, so he can fix what needs to be fixed. When we allow his loving kindness to cover us, we begin to show that same kindness to others.
God shows us his loving kindness because we are his children and He doesn’t want to see any of us fall away. Even though we are so bad, God see us as good. We must forgive and love the inexcusable because He has forgiven us. Loving kindness comes from the depths of one’s heart to forgive and forget like God has forgiven us. As God’s children, we must seek Him with all hearts in every area of our lives, so we can recognize the goodness he wants to show us and do through us to others.
Question: Are you letting the Lord show His steadfast love to you? Do you realize that you are a child of God? What areas of your life do you need to hand over to God?
