Lamentations 3:22-23

 
Through the LORD's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23

There is something I have learned about myself as I have grown older, I am a perfectionist. Not when other people do things, but only when I do them. I need to complete it right the first time in a specific way, otherwise I will be kicking myself for days.

Praise the Lord He doesn't expect perfection! We would be in serious trouble if God was judging us consistently on how perfectly we have performed. God is concerned with our obedience. Were you obedient to what I asked you to do, He asks. But, even then, we often do not heed the call upon our hearts. Praise be to the God of the universe that His mercies are new every morning. Praise be to the God of all flesh that He is faithful when we are not! Know this, that God is pleased when we are simply obedient to His calling upon our hearts. He is not a God of works, but a God of grace, mercy, and compassion.

Resting in His mercy,

Sean Boehm
