GREAT IS GOD’S FAITHFULNESS
22Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
Do you ever wonder how in the world the Lord puts up with you? Sometimes I wonder why He doesn’t just strike me down right where I stand. But it is because He loves us so much that He takes mercy on us and forgives us. He is so faithful that it is like, each morning when we wake up, we have a clean slate and start all over again. Yesterday is forgiven and forgotten by our Father. When we asked Jesus to be our Savior and Lord and to forgive us of our sins, He forgave us of ALL our sins, past, present, and future. That is not to say that we shouldn’t confess our present sins and ask forgiveness of them in repentance. Of course we should. But the fact is that God is faithful to cleanse us for all our sins. The truth is that our faith centers on the reality that God keeps all His promises according to His truthful, faithful character. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS AND HE WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY.
