New Mercies

Today’s devotional reflection on New Beginnings is about: New Mercies

22 ” The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,[b]
    his mercies never come to an end;”

23 ” they are new every morning;
    great is thy faithfulness. “

    – Lamentations 3:22-23, RSVCE | NJB

New Mercies (New Beginnings Devotional Reflection)

The end of the year and the beginning of the next one often inspire people to contemplate their lives. What have you done in the past year that you’ve regretted?

Did you speak out of turn in a situation where you should have remained silent? Did you abandon a family member or friend in their time of need? Did you lean deeper into a habitual sin?

In the book of Ezra, the Israelite nation returns to Judah after seventy years in captivity. They were taken from their homeland and forced to live in Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar. The seven decades of imprisonment was God’s way of getting the attention of His wayward child.

Sometimes, God lets us walk through darkness so He can redeem us from some sin in our lives. Maybe your husband discovered your pornography habit and asked for a trial separation. Maybe your retail therapy is costing you thousands of dollars in debt.

Rest assured that though these days might be difficult, God is still using them for your good. His plan is to redeem you from your sin and restore you to a right relationship with Himself. God’s compassion and His faithfulness will never fail you.

God, I confess—I haven’t honored You with my words
and deeds this past year. I acknowledge this sin and
confess it before You. Please redeem my story and
restore me in Your timing.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
