“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not” (Lamentations 3:22).
This verse is absolutely stunning in its beauty. Think of the most beautiful sunset you have ever witnessed. This verse exceeds it. Every word is powerful and precious; however, in our Daily Prescription for today, may I take you to two specific words? The first is the word “mercies.” It is the Hebrew word Hesed which speaks of God’s enduring faithful and loyal love. The second word is the word “compassions” which is Racham which speaks of the womb, or a mother’s love for her unborn baby. Think of it dear friend. It is because of the Lord’s enduring faithful love that we are not consumed, because of His love, like that of a mother and her unborn baby, does not fail. We are so blessed indeed. Think of this often today. I will as well.
For today: How awesome is our Lord in every way!
