Loving Father, another day and another fresh batch of your mercies greet us, even before sunrise. We join Jeremiah in calling to mind your great love and your great faithfulness. In fact, we can ‘call to mind’ much more of your love and faithfulness than Jeremiah. Our place in the history of redemption is to be much preferred over his.
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’. Lam.3:22-24).
