New Mercy

by Joel Osteen

Today's Scripture

" The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning" (Lamentations 3:22-23, NLT).

Today's Word

Isnít it good to know that no matter what happened yesterday, no matter what you said, no matter what you did, Godís mercy is new for you today? Mercy is empowering. It frees us to make the right choices and live in a way that is pleasing to God. We have to always remember that God is not condemning us. Romans tells us that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. God wants to love us and equip us to overcome in this life.

Do you need new mercy today? Receive it by faith. You donít have to beg God to forgive you. He forgives you the first time you ask, but itís up to you to receive that forgiveness. Open your heart today and receive His mercy. Let Him wash over you with His peace and joy. Then choose to extend that mercy to others. Remember, you are Godís representative in the earth. As you show His love and character to others, Heíll pour out His blessing upon you and use you in ways you never dreamed!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, today I choose to receive Your mercy and forgiveness. Thank You for cleansing me of all unrighteousness. Thank You for making me new. I love You and bless Your Holy Name. In Jesusí Name. Amen.
