You Don't Have to Wait
Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
GOD's mercies are new every morning...... We've all heard it; some have even quoted it; I being one of those people. But yesterday these words jumped off the pages and settled in my spirit as I heard the LORD say, "You don't have to wait!"
You see it is important that we understand who our GOD is; that we understand HIS heart and HIS love towards us. HE is a just GOD, HE is a vindicator. HE established sowing and reaping. HE will not be mocked. Yet, HE is our Father. HE is so loving towards us. HIS mercies are a gift. We don't have to wait for them; they come to us anew every single morning and they never cease. HE said this to me yesterday. "I don't have a 24 hour waiting period. There are no legalities. I am not like man and even if you had to earn it you couldn't."
Some of us don't have great relationships with our fathers (or mothers). No matter how much we may try to pretend or maybe just move on with our lives as if these relationships don't effect us, we're wrong. The very first relationship that should establish trust, safety and assurance in your life is that of your physical parents. When that is broken or flawed it affects our approach to every other relationship in our lives. For many of us, this is why we've had such a hard time accepting GOD's love and understanding how a Father we cannot see can love us better than the one that we can see. .
Yet, today GOD wants you to know that HE loves you and that today HIS mercies for you are new also. HE wants you to know that today is your other chance; and tomorrow will be also. Decide now to accept HIS mercy, grace and love. Decide today to be the best version of you. Should tomorrow come, try again and again and again. HE'll help you if you will surrender to HIM. It is GOD's pleasure to bless you, so let HIM today. Accept HIS mercies, direction and grace!
