Message of the Day: God’s Compassion Never Fails!
“The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.” (Lamentations 3:22, NLT)
The author of Lamentations portrays God like a wild animal that tears its prey to pieces, or like a hunter who has shot his prey with an arrow. Mocked and afflicted, he feels like one who has been punished by being forced to eat and drink things that are harmful to him. He is like a person whose face has been rubbed in the ground and whose joy for life has gone. He feels hurt and depressed, yet in all the darkness of his suffering he now sees a ray of hope. God may punish, but he still trusts in God. He knows that God’s steadfast love does not change. It is constant and reliable. (3:10-24)
When we are humbled and aware of our sinfulness, we find God instead of dealing with us in judgment, has dealt with us in mercy, and that though at times, our affliction is excessive, yet it is less than our iniquity deserve. If, indeed, sinners be kept out of trouble, it is because God’s compassion never fails.
