SOAP Journal Entry – Lamentations 3:22-23

S – [22] The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; [23] they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV)

O – When the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness one of the important lessons they had to learn was God’s provision of manna was on a morning by morning basis. They couldn’t live on old manna, nor could they store up for the future.

A – By the same token, I can not live on old blessings or hope to store up God’s blessings for future use. God doesn’t want me to live in the past or the future. He wants me to live in the now! The present. Each day presents a new opportunity for me to be blessed and to bless others. It reminds me of a clean slate. I may have messed up yesterday, but I don’t have to live there. I can arise and know that God’s love and compassion and mercy are never ending. It’s a new morning!

P – Heavenly Father, thank you so much for your faithfulness. Thank you that no matter what happens you pour out your love, compassion, faithfulness and blessings – every day! You never come to an end. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Great Is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; all that I needed Thy hand hath provided-Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.
