“God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left.” Lamentations 3:22-24 The Message
Do you know what awaits your day…?
… loyal love … merciful love … new every morning love … stockpiles of love. God is the Covenant-Keeper. That’s His name. He is Faithful. He’s there when life feels all dried up on the inside. He’s there when all of you has run out. He’s there when all you’ve got left is the One who won’t walk out … who works severely and tenderly … whose supply is unfailingly great. All of the greatness of God’s faithfulness is yours today in Jesus. Your struggles … Your fears … Your weaknesses … Your hopes and dreams … are all contained in the faithful sticking love of Christ. Will you trust your stockpiles or His? What is new for you today is available in Jesus … anything less will run out .. dry up .. walk out and not return. It only takes a moment to be “gripped” in the “immense” life and love of Christ .. the Faithful One.
“Why? Because the Master won’t ever walk out and fail to return. If he works severely, he also works tenderly. His stockpiles of loyal love are immense.” Lamentations 3:31-32 The Message
