It was a spiritual turning point for me when I decided to take God at his Word. It was two words, actually: Never and Every. In Lamentations 3:22-23 …
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.
When I most wanted to give up, when I was all but convinced that God would surely give up on me, I decided to believe that the words never and every are true.
NEVER. His love never runs out. Neither his mercy. And by the way, in the original Hebrew, the word translated never means never.
EVERY. His mercy is new every morning. Like this is Day One.
This means that you can open your eyes each new day in a right relationship with God, if that’s what you want. Not because you were perfect yesterday, but because this day, like every day, he extends his mercy brand new, to all who dare to ask. Just like Lamentations says.
Thank God for never and every.
