July 17 - God’s Faithfulness offers Hope

“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:21-23)

One of the great things about spending a lot of time in the Revelation is seeing that the Lord shows His love for humanity right up to the very end.  He doesn’t begin annihilating the evil from the face of the earth until it is too late to save it from itself.

His compassion for us never fails.  There is never a time that His mercy is not available to each person in creation.  His faithfulness to His creation is eternal. 

Each morning when we wake up, God is there awaiting our decision.  We get to choose whether the day will be one in which we spend it with Him or not.  But, just because we make a selfish decision one day doesn’t mean that He is not waiting in the same manner the very next morning.

We give up on each other. We give up on ourselves.  But the Lord never does that.  He is always merciful to us, always wanting us to be in full and complete relationship with Him.  He doesn’t reject us because we forget about Him.  He is faithful to us … always.
