Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.Lamentations 3:21-23 (NIV)
El Emunah. My God and Father. The Great and Mighty God of all. The One who is the Creator of all that is seen and unseen; things before, right now and ahead. I ask You for forgiveness of sins, whether they be of thoughts, words or deeds. I thank You that my sins are as far from me as the east is from the west, so You can use me once again.
Today I come before You to give thanks, because Your mercies are new every morning. Life is a long road that has many things that step into our paths to sidetrack us, blind us, slow us down or speed us up. However, I can thank You for always being a God of a second chance; I can pull on Your mercy as it endures forever. You are a Faithful God and no matter how many times I fail, You are there to lift me up, forgive me and place me back up on the Rock from where I fell. Remind me, when I fall away it is not from physical things but it is from You. Help me to find myself within You. Once my roots are embedded in You, they will not be uprooted and pushed away. I remain rooted and focused. Joy, peace, love, confidence and courage are all available to me in abundance, if I request them from You, and do not expect to find them in this world. As I seek Your face, I ask for a new heart to be placed within me, which holds new desires. As the songwriter requests, ‘Prepare me to be a sanctuary; pure and holy, tried and true’. I look to You and ask that Your will be done in my life.
Blessed (content, sheltered by God’s promises) are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.Matthew 5:7 (AMP)
Be merciful (responsive, compassionate, tender) just as your (heavenly) Father is merciful.Luke 6:36 (AMP)
Blessed (gratefully praised and adored) be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts and encourages us in every trouble so that we will be able to comfort and encourage those who are in any kind of trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (AMP)
But God, being (so very) rich in mercy, because of His great and wonderful love with which He loved us, even when we were (spiritually) dead and separated from Him because of our sins, He made us (spiritually) alive together with Christ (for by His grace—His undeserved favor and mercy—you have been saved from God’s judgment).Ephesians 24:5 (AMP)
‘…having been deeply rooted (in Him) and now being continually built up in Him and (becoming increasingly more) established in your faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing in it with gratitudeColossians 2:7 (AMP)
Nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like one day. The Lord does not delay (as though He were unable to act) and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is (extraordinarily) patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance2 Peter 3:8-9 (AMP)
If we (freely) admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises), and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness (our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose).1 John 1:9 (AMP)
To You who is able to keep me from falling and to present me before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to You who is the only God, my Saviour, be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Yeshua The Anointed One, my Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. Jude 1:24-25
