Mercies of God

sunrise-1634734_960_720

As we live with a chronic illness, we sometimes only see the bad. We fail to realize it is owing to the mercies of God that they are not worse.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Lamentation 3: 22-23 KJV, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”

What the Verses Mean:

We should observe what the Lord makes for us, as well as what is against us. God’s compassions do not fail. We have fresh instances every morning. Portions on earth are perishing things, but God is a portion for ever. It is our duty and will be our comfort and satisfaction, to hope and quietly to wait for the salvation of the Lord.

Praying Using the Verses:

  1. God our Father, thank you that your steadfast love never ceases. Your love awaits us daily.
  2. Lord Jesus, we praise you that your mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning.
  3. We testify great is your faithfulness.
  4. We continue to ask for healing for our or our loved one’s chronic illness.
