As we sit and reflect on another year gone by, many memories, joys, heartbreaks, trials, and blessings may come to mind. It is always nice to be able to look back and see where the Lord was leading us and what he was teaching us. Many times it is much easier to see things from God’s perspective when we can look back on things. He gives us new perspective with each passing day. He is constantly making us new.
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
-2 Corinthians 5:17
I think one of the greatest things about God is that He has grace for each and every day. Not just the day when we came to know Him personally. Not just the day that was really terrible and we felt far away from Him. Not just that day when we flew off the handle and said things we didn’t mean to someone we love. He has grace for each and every day of our lives. His mercy is new every morning.
“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.”
In this new year, may we remember how faithful the God of the universe has been to us. His mercies are new each and every day. May we commit to being faithful to Him, as He has been so faithful to us, each and every day!
