Morning by Morning New Mercies
An example of this is found in Exodus 16:21, where we read how God provided food for His people daily, not all at once. "So they gathered it every morning, every man according to his need. And when the sun became hot, it melted."
Have you ever noticed that God provides just what we need exactly when we need it?
He gives rest when we're weary, encouragement when we're down, direction and wisdom at just the right time, help when we're in trouble and dying grace ONLY when we're dying. No matter what we face, He will meet us at our point of need. We would not be able to handle all of God's mercies at once nor does He intend for us to learn all He has to teach us at one time only. When we feel we can't go on, a new day dawns, complete with God's tender mercies for that day.
Lamentations 3:22 and 23 remind us that "Through the LORD's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning;Great is Your faithfulness."
"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation." Psalm 68:19
