VerseD: Lamentations 3:22-23

The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23, NASB

Life is tough.

Yet, we should focus on how He takes care of us and blesses us every day, especially His saving us from our sins.

VerseD: Isaiah 55:6-7

Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the Lord , And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
Isaiah 55:6‭-‬7, NASB

Death is end of chances to seek God. He can be found during this life only. After death, He finds you, but not for salvation. Only His wrath remains.

Instead, turn to Him today, and forsake your selfish desires and thoughts to receive God’s compassion and grace.

VerseD: Psalm 116:1

I love the Lord , because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.
Psalm 116:1, ESV

God hears our prayers and wants to give us mercy.

We must also remember that He has said that He hears the prayers of those who love Him.

Seek God’ righteousness and His mercy.

VerseD: John 7:38

“Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'”
John 7:38, ESV

The natural result of salvation is the outpouring of God’s love, compassion, and grace through you via the Holy Spirit of Christ.

VerseD: Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Psalm 27:14, ESV

We are all too often restless and impatient. We must learn God’s patience.

Remember that He has been patient with us, throughout all of history and until Christ returns, saving even us.

VerseD: Micah 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8, ESV

What many fail to realize about the Golden Rule (treat others as you want to be treated) is how deep this rule goes.

We know about pursuing justice and showing kindness and mercy to others, but without the humble acknowledgment of the need for God’s love and wisdom those are basically meaningless.

VerseD: Colossians 3:13

bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
Colossians 3:13, ESV

When we stand together, we are stronger. When we feel (or are) slighted, get over yourself and love them through forgiveness.
