As we remember the sacrifice of Jesus’ bleeding death on the cross of Calvary and His triumphant resurrection on the third day, let us bow in thanksgiving for the victory He won for us. Praise Jesus, Lamb of God, Who cleanses us from sin and leads us in the way, everlasting.

Romans: 8: 1, 2  There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus,  the law of the Spirit Who gives you life sets you free from the law of sin and death. NIV

Colossians 13  For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in Whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS, OH LORD.”

Lamentations 3:  22,23 NKJV

“YOUR MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING”

WE LOVE YOU, LORD, FOR LOVING US!

 

‘YOU REDEEM OUR LIVES FROM DESTRUCTION;

YOU CROWN US WITH LOVING KINDNESS AND TENDER MERCIES’

PSALM 103:4 NKJV

Lamentations 3: 22,23,24  NKJV “It is through the Lord’s mercies, we are not consumed.  Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: Great is Your faithfulness.  The Lord is my portion says my soul.  Therefore I hope in Him.”

Often, we think we are the faithful ones because~  perhaps, after being away from Him for a while, we return and begin to pray again.  In actuality, the Lord is the Faithful One because He takes  the first step in the beginning by approaching and knocking at the door of our hearts, and stays and waits.  So, He has always been there, with us, waiting to hear from us.  The Lord is merciful to the soul who seeks Him.

Lamentations 3: 40.  “Let us search out and examine our ways, and turn back to the Lord.  Let us lift our hearts and hands to God in heaven.” 

Psalm 103: 14  “For He knows our frame  He remembers that we are made of dust”. .

PRAYER:

We thank You for another day, Lord…for watching over us through the night.  Thank You that your mercies are from everlasting to everlasting.  Thank You for waiting for us to realize that Your love is timeless.   Bring us to a point where we worship before You, confessing our shortcomings and asking for Your mercy and compassion that is so freely given,  for the asking.  Bring us to that place where we can speak with You freely and eagerly wait for Your response.  How comforting to know You are with us and will always be with us… In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hebrews 4: 15 “For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses but was in all point tempted as we are without sin.  Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace in the time of need.”
