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.
I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
Think of a day or a season in your life when you thought you might be consumed by pain, hurt, stress, anger, or something else?
What promises in God’s Word can or do you claim in the times you feel like you might be consumed?
What do you think it means to wait on the Lord?
Oh, Father, thank you for loving me. Thank you for your mercy and compassion. I would be utterly lost without you. Some days feel so long, the bad news unending, and the clouds ever-covering. I am so thankful that every morning your compassion and mercy are new and I never have to wonder if the tank is low or whether you will run out and I will be left on my own. Father, so often I get ahead of myself, ahead of where I know you have placed me. Help me to wait for your faithful provision and serve you full-on where I am.
