Daily Reflections

A Fresh Opportunity

August 3, 2020 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. —Lamentations 3:22–23

Want to go deeper in your relationship with the Lord? First, tell Him you’re going to let your salvation be more than a once-upon-a-time event but rather a daily cause for celebration and wonder.

Tell Him you’re going to make each day a fresh opportunity to watch for His blessings in things both great and small—from the ultimate, awesome gift of His saving grace to the privilege of having a healthy family to the pleasure of not having a painful sore in your mouth.

Tell Him you’re going to offer up to Him every situation and circumstance in your life, even the ones that make absolutely no sense. No matter how bad it gets, what someone says to you, how long it goes on, or where it might lead, you will drop the full weight of it at His feet every night, be thankful for His strength that brought you through the day, and wait for His mercies that will be new in the morning!
