“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
We’ve all been there: that moment in life when the unthinkable happens. That moment when you drive out of one storm straight into another. You’re already weak, stressed out, and angry at the world, and all you can think is, “Seriously? I’ve had enough trial for one season of life, thank you very much!” Maybe you’re going through all of life’s craziness and you’re struggling to believe that a loving and merciful God would really let so much bad happen. Well me too. Thankfully God makes us a promise.
It says in Lamentations, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases…” Those words alone are impossible to comprehend with our simple, human minds. If we were left to believe by our own will, we would probably think, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases’… but I think I can do this on my own so just hold out for a bit.” We are so foolish! God gives us endless mercies. Every morning He renews His ceaseless and steadfast love. God sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to take the burden of our sins. He did this so that we could be tethered to Him; so that He could share our burdens and sorrows. His faithfulness is so great! God uses the unthinkably bad seasons of life to make us dwell in His unimaginably good. He will not give any of us more than we can handle. So today trust that your are tethered to God’s love by the blood of Christ. Nothing that you could do or any of your trials could ever change His steadfast love.
