A New Hope

Lamentations 3:21-24
But in my mind I keep returning to something, something that gives me hope –
That the grace of Adonai is not exhausted,
That His compassion has not ended.
On the contrary, they are new (something not known before) every morning!
How great Your faithfulness!
“Adonai is all I have,” I say; “therefore I will put my hope in Him.”

Zephaniah 3:5
Adonai, who is righteous, is there among them; He never does anything wrong. Every morning He renders His judgement, every morning without fail.

Its always interesting to me that as I read scripture…though I have read it before…simple little words jump out at me as they did not the 1st, 2nd, or 100th time previous. Taken all together the whole of the verse from previous “chewings” to present lessons…build me up in Him. Him who is the Word!

The latter verse speaks of His judgement every morning. The first verse speaks of His heart/motive/purpose for judgement. Instead of it having a harsh/punishing slant; it holds the promise of His love, grace, mercy. Something unfamiliar is new. Who can not say how well known condemnation and guilt is by those of us who know how short we come to His perfection? So that kind of judgement is well known by all of mankind! The NEW, is the kind that Yeshua (Jesus) introduced with every Word He spoke!

God knew/knows we need to be reminded of His mercies every morning! How do we know? The sun…it comes up every morning on all, righteous, wicked, sick, well, hungry, fed, thirsty, dehydrated, loving, hateful, kind, cruel, those who know Him, those who don’t. The only requirement to having a sun in their sky everyday is that He made it/them! Even those who walk with Him daily can not begin to describe that kind of love, mercy, grace! Its beyond the created’s ability! All we can do us open our hearts to receive it…as whole heartedly as we can.

Letting Him carry forward anything from yesterday is wise. Let go of the things that have happened yesterday, place them in His hands. Trust if you need anything from that which is no more, that He who holds all can bring it back; but bank on it being new! Yes! This! This is hope! A hope worth dying for! A hope that sustains life! A new hope! Glory to God!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
