Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy,
That we may rejoice and be glad all our days! Psalm 90:14
From a psalm by Moses. This psalm has been around a long time. I think I write that every time this psalm comes up here. Moses perhaps feels the span of many years here and asks for a satisfying measure of God's mercy early in life. Rejoicing and gladness all our days would be something, and what to us is a long time later, an answer comes!
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
Jeremiah wrote the Lord's answer, we have new mercies and compassions each morning. It is indeed a mercy from the Lord that our sin does not consume us each day. It is the compassion of the Lord that is given each morning to start a new day in the love and grace of His wonderful Son. It is the Lord's mercies that take away our vision of the Lord God as a hammer and His Son snatching us away from the awful descending blow. It was always God's mercy and compassion that failed us not, and from His love and goodness came our Savior Jesus the Christ.
Now that makes for a day of gladness and rejoicing!Bucky
