“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
You and I as believers in Christ can live in the abundant treasure of God’s grace. With our eyes wide open, our hearts soften and our minds awaken we can see and experience the cosmic glory of all Christ accomplished at the cross and we can discover the fullness of all God promised in the New Covenant
God had with a loud and clear voice shouted out his promises to all who would listen throughout the Old Testament. In fact his promises are so transparent that they are easy to miss. Even in the midst of extreme suffering, oppression and captivity, God’s grace shines from eternity and declares that he loves us, he is loyal to us, he is faithful to us and committed to us.
The Jewish prophet, Jeremiah declares from exile, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.”
Jeremiah touched, cherished and embraced the grace of God. He tasted the love of God that never ceases, that goes on and on, and no matter what situation we are in, never fails us, is never outside us and is constantly being poured upon us.
There is never a day of completion to God’s grace. God is working in and through us and with every breath and every heart-beat the grace of God is fresh anointing oil. We can’t out live it, we cannot out run it, we cannot out do it, it is fresh, new and always there for us.
There is no place that grace cannot find us, there are no depths that it cannot reach us, and there is no escape from its all encompassing goodness, never-ending provision.
The best of God is now working for us; we who live after the cross have all the promises alive in us through the cross. We receive all the benefits for which others only hoped.
Christ is ours, God is ours, his nature, his grace, his love, his faith, all his fullness abides and remains in us, by his goodness we are in him and he remains in us.
