In Psalm 56, David faces seemingly insurmountable difficulties. In the midst of them, he affirms that he can trust God. One of his primary reasons is that God’s keeps his word, his promises never fail. This week I reached out to the Grace family and asked about promises that have been especially meaningful to you. Here’s what you shared. Thank you for trusting God…and sharing why you do!

As more come in on the FB post, I’ll update this blog. Consider it a treasure chest to be opened every day. And that’s one of my favorite promises and the reason for the title of this blog. God’s mercies are new every morning (enough for today). What a faithful God!

But this I call to mind; and therefore I have hope: 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. (Lamentations 3:21-24)

And here are the ones you shared.

It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)–Nancy Elliot, Shannon Delaney, Crystal Baker

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear… (Psalm 46:1)–Marie Grindstaff, when God protected their home from being flooded

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. (Isaiah 43:2)–Mary Shomaker

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)–Jeanna Gowan

Behold the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. (Revelation 21:3-4)–Margaret Fretwell

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)–Jennifer Buchanan

They who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)–Joyce Poplin

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (‭‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18‬‬:‭2‬‬‬)–Don Grindstaff

I will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5.)–Tina Laughridge
