It was a bad day for Jeremiah as he walked the streets of his beloved city, Jerusalem. He saw the ruin and the destruction. He wrote his lament about the things he was seeing.
But in the midst of the destruction, he saw something else.
[quote name=”Lam 3:21-24″]This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I have hope in Him.”[/quote]
Everyday is a new day.
In Christ, everyday is a new day when I can put yesterday behind me as I move on from the past.
Everyday is a new day to strive for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
The Lord is over my past, present and future.
For those who have made Him their portion, their life, they have hope. A hope that is real and never fades away.
Enjoy the peace of this new day in Christ. Let Him be your life today. Relish His hope.
