The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
Reading this verse recently, I wondered if there was ever a time that I haven’t doubted God’s love for me. It didn’t take long to realise that I have never doubted. Oh, there has been doubt in my life but not when it comes to these promises.
Everyday is a new beginning—like a new igniting of a flame that burns without ceasing yet that radiance never really disappears—an afterglow that burns with new strength like the turning up of a gaslight. It’s difficult to put into words yet its existence is—simple. I feel it. I see it. I hear it. I never doubt it. Every one of my senses is alive with the knowledge that His love for me is real—and that I cannot doubt.
Have you ever thought what it would be like if there was no sunrise? For one thing, without a sunrise there could never be a sunset and either one not happening is not easy to imagine. Just as the sun rises and sets every day so too we can know God’s promises in these few verses—so great is His faithfulness to us.
