The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:21-24
There are times when we feel as if there is no hope for us, that our situation isn’t going to get better. You might be feeling this from missing the mark of what God wants for you or from something out of your control.
Lamentations 3:21-24 tells us that God’s mercies are new every morning, that is shown by us still waking up the next day after missing the mark of what God commands. Even in our lowest moments, He hasn’t given up on us, He hasn’t forsaken us. God is our portion, He is our inheritance. Therefore we can have hope that God will sustain us so that we can continue to chase Him.
His steadfast love never ceases regardless of the situation. Remember that whatever you have gone through or whatever you are going through doesn’t change His love for you. Keep chasing Him and pursuing His will for your life.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
