Google produces a list of Scripture when you ask, “Which 10 encouraging bible verses do I need to read each day?” The second passage on that list is Lamentations 3:22, 23. Today’s Daily Bread email message very briefly explains that scripture that focuses on encouragement while repenting.
The tender compassion of God has never been absent even in the work of punishment.
Even in the severity of the correction God’s people endured, there was evidence of His compassions. There was rich comfort in realizing that the tender affection of God was not completely spent.
These tender compassions are new every morning.
Each dawning day gives mankind hope in fresh mercies and compassions from God. We need a constant supply and God has promised to send them without fail. No matter how bad the past day was, God’s people can look to the new morning with faith and hope.
Every time we wake up, God’s mercies are new. This is another way of showing us that God’s mercy will never run out. Regardless of how often you rely on God’s compassion, there will be more for you tomorrow.
It is encouraging that God pours out His love for us and that His mercies are new every day. Every day is a new day in which we can move in a direction that defines our eternity. Our contentment is not found in the things of this world, but in God’s constant and consistent mercy; His saving grace.
Just as people live with the certainty that the sun will rise in the morning; believers can trust and know that God’s strong love and faithfulness will greet them again each day and His tender mercies will be renewed every morning.
All this made Jeremiah consider the great faithfulness of God. God never fails in sending His mercies and compassions. Even in their catastrophe, God was faithful. He faithfully announced His judgments and performed them, and God would prove to be just as faithful in His promised restoration.
