Yesterday’s verse reminds me of today’s verse, especially verse 23: “They [His compassions] are new every morning.” No matter the sins I committed yesterday, a year ago, no matter the sins I will commit today, I am overcome with God’s grace and love, and His compassions cover me over and over and over again. That is the joy in serving and following our awesome God. -Erin
“I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.
Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
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 on Him.’
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him,
to the one who seeks Him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.”
