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 thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:21-23
In the middle of Jeremiah’s tears he found hope–hope in a God who deposits exactly enough mercies into every one of his children’s life accounts every day. Every new day brings new mercies. God intends us to exhaust the account every day. And he promises to fill the account the next day.
Why? Because God longs for a daily relationship with you. Jesus said we should pray for “daily” bread. God gave Israel enough manna for one “day.” God promises to provide you what you need today.
This blog is intended to remind you that Jesus is enough for today. He is.
Indeed, Jesus IS enough for today – and tomorrow, and forever, IF we place our trust in Him.
We have a choice: We can trust in man or we can trust in Jesus. Whom do YOU choose?
“5 This is what the Lord says:
“Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. 8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:5-8 (NIV)
Amen Ray! And so excited about Our Daily Bread!
Jerry, I ordered 100 additional copies of Our Daily Bread. Our order was confirmed this morning!
Yesterday, I received an additional 100 copies of Our Daily Bread. I plan to drop those off at the front desk today (Thursday), so they’ll be available on Sunday morning.
From this point forward, we’re scheduled to receive 200 new copies every three months (the current Our Daily Bread contains devotions for December, January and February).
In His Grip,
