Morning by morning new mercies I see. . .– “Great is Thy Faithfulness”
Every single day is a blessing. Yes, I know that it can be considered a given, but today I have good reason to say so. After tossing and turning all night with a head cold, I could hardly sleep. I awoke in a stuper this morning and in no condition to even try to go to church, possibly infecting everyone near me. I awoke and celebrated the goodness of God.
Great is Thy Faithfulness!
I celebrate the fact that God is in charge. He can slow us down when we will run ourselves down to the bone and keep on until there’s nothing to wear out left. God has stopping power. He can stop the planets in the middle of their orbit. He can command the birds of the air to feed a runaway prophet and the fish of the sea to leap into the nets of a small boat for Simon Peter. God has power.
He gives us new mercies daily. He doesn’t try to pass off yesterday’s mercies as just as good or in working condition. He gives us the best that He has to offer.
I just say thank you for not leaving me in yesterday’s condition and
allowing me to awake today in a new condition.
Yes, Lord, You are powerful!
