Happy New Year!! 2019 has arrived and we are all expressing good wishes to family and friends. A new year with new opportunities and possibilities! I looked through the Bible for what God says about new things and I found quite a lot! New covenants, a new heaven and a new earth, a new song, a new mind and others. Our God is a God of newness. Old things are passed away, behold all things are made new! I especially love the verses from Lamentations 3:22-23 ” It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning, great is thy faithfulness.” The mercies and compassions of the Lord are NEW every morning! He is faithful!! His faithfulness is great!!
Each day we get up with a fresh shower of mercy and compassion from the Lord. Let us live in that mercy and share it to those around us in this new year. Give grace to others. Have mercy on those who bother you or have issues around you. Have compassion on the downtrodden and needy. Be a new you in 2019 and show others Christs newness! Have a very blessed NEW Year!!
