I wish to encourage you all to place the loving mercy of our Lord in the forefront of your thinking as you enter this new day. As the writer of Lamentations rightly explains, in the midst of all that life throws at us, we choose to ”call to mind” the character of God. Regardless of what lays ahead of you today, your soul is safe! Your hope is grounded in the very eternal nature of our sovereign God who loves you with an everlasting, inseparable love, which intertwines His mercy with the activities and events of the day that lays before you.
Lam. 3:21-25 (ESV) But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: (22) The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; (23) they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (24) “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” (25) The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
Enter today beloved assured of our Saviours merciful truth in you. Lean upon His provision, in spite of what you may be feeling, for He will sustain your soul. Carry each other to our King in prayer, knowing that He can accomplish what we can only dream of. We walk by faith for His glory and each other’s blessing through faith in Christ.
Your brother: Lincoln Forlong
