April 24, 2014 … Mercies New Every Morning

Daily Berry Patch Devotions in 2014 - Day 114

Devotional Song: Go to this link …  Please go to this video link to hear Cece Winans singing of Great Is Thy Faithfulness, reminding us that God’s mercies never end … no matter what we might encounter in life. … And GO TO THIS LINK  for a very special acapella version of this old hymn.

Highlight Passage – NKJV: Lamentations 3: 22-23 [NKJV] …  
22 Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness.
Highlight Passage [Context] #1 – NKJV: Lamentations 3: 13-26 [NKJV] … Go to this link  

Reference Passages #1: Deuteronomy 31: 8 [NKJV] …   
8 “… And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”

Reference Passages #2: Proverbs 3: 5-6 [NKJV] …   
5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him; and He will direct your paths.

Reference Passages #3: Romans 8: 28 [NKJV] …
28 All things work together for those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purposes.

Reference Passages #4: Hebrews 13: 8 [NKJV] …
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

My Journal for Today: Sometimes, when things are not going our way, and life takes a bad turn in the road, we can tend to get the feeling that God has abandoned us. But if we’ve taken in the highlight and reference scriptures above – and we really BELIEVE them – we have faith and know that God will never abandon us. And not only is this God’s unfailing truth, His mercies are new EVERY MORNING and His faithfulness, as Cece Winans sings in the You Tube piece linked above, is FOREVER.

I don’t think I need to say anymore here, do I? We either believe and live in these truths, or we don’t.

I pray we do!!

My Prayer for Today … Lord, in the past couple of weeks I’ve needed to be reminded of Your faithfulness … that Your mercies are new every morning; and You’ve been there to lift me up, time and time again. Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!! … Amen
