Fresh Mercy, New Faithfulness

Fresh Mercy, New Faithfulness” By Kirk Hunt


Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 NKJV


Good morning. Welcome to a new year. Also, welcome to a fresh edition of God’s mercy.


Perhaps last year was not your best. Even if you feel convicted, you are not condemned. Take a generous portion of His mercy and begin again.


You may have done well last year. Praise God for your faithfulness. Still, you cannot rest on past accomplishments. Move, in His mercy, to your next assignment and task.


His compassion for His people never runs out. He understands our weak spots. Our quirks are not a surprise to Him. He only asks that we faithfully share His compassion and mercy with others.


This New Year is an occasion to begin again, or correct course. Faithfully, God has given us a fresh opportunity to work in His Kingdom. Use this choice benefit to its fullest.


Learn, of course, from past errors but otherwise put all your effort into future work. God has preserved and protected you. Not just for your sake, but for those you will bless and benefit.


The dawn signals a new day. The New Year is more than the passage of time. It is an opportunity to be blessed and bless others.


Think: New mercy and fresh compassion allow God’s people to work and bless others.


Pray: “Lord, help me to share Your mercy and compassion with others.”

Rest In His Presence

Rest In His Presence” By Kirk Hunt


And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Exodus 33:14 NKJV


It has been a long year. Take a moment to sit here and receive His restoration. Pause in His presence, and accept His rest.


There is a comforting space in His arms, just for you. He wants to speak special encouragement to your soul. He longs to speak the love of His heart, directly to yours.


Too many of God’s people engage in non-stop frenzy. Rush here. Speed there. If there is time to breathe than you are idle, if not lazy.


Playing through the rest notation in sheet music ruins the song. Playing a sport without proper rest exposes the player or team to mistakes in play and injury in their bodies. Champions rest.


Rest allows restoration. A pause allows thoughtful consideration of past results. Insightful and innovative strategies grow from deliberate stops in the action.


His presence is a pleasant place. Yes, there may be correction or conviction. Still, there will be affection and care beyond your highest expectations. Your Father calls to you. Let Him love you for a while.


Spend your money on a quiet, restful, place and space. Let the God of Heaven restore and replenish you. There will be time later for hurly–burly. Make time now for the warmth and caring that only He can give.


Think: God’s presence empowers His men and women through rest and restoration.


Pray: “Lord, let me pause here, in Your presence, and receive Your restoration.”
