Message from Darren Johnson Development Director

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)

Praise God for the promises he makes to us in scripture! This verse was turned into a song that I find myself singing all the time.

This verse reveals to us three things about God:

First of all God’s love is steadfast: it never ceases. His love for us is not predicated on what we have done for Him, it’s all about what He has done for us. He loves us no matter what situations we are in.

Secondly, He doesn’t ration his mercies. They are limitless. He doesn’t run out of them no matter how many we need. He gives us a fresh dose of new ones every single morning.

Finally, even though we can be completely faithless at times to Him, He is faithful to us. Just like his never ceasing love, His faithfulness is not based on our performance. Great is His Faithfulness.

Maybe you have had a tough week, maybe it has been a tough year, or maybe even a tough decade. I encourage you to rest on the promises that God makes in Lamentations Chapter 3: He loves you, His mercies are new every morning and great is His faithfulness.

God bless you and may you have a great day in the Lord.
