Morning by Morning New Mercies I See

Pastor Jim’s sermon on August 15 was about God’s faithfulness as shown in Lamentations 3.

 

Morning by Morning New Mercies I See…

One of the hymns that most of us know is based on today’s scripture: “Great is thy Faithfulness.”   The refrain includes the line “Morning by morning new mercies I see…. All I have needed Thy hand has provided. Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.”

There is a lily-type plant which produces flowers that last only one day.  It buds in the morning, is in full bloom in the afternoon, and by evening it wilts and shrivels.  BUT, the plant produces a new bud which will bloom the next day.  Just like the manna which God used to feed the Israelites during their trek through the wilderness, God feeds us with all we need, day by day.

Click the below tabs in sequence to see God’s daily provision of beauty:

Thursday Evening … Thursday’s flower is wilted, but Friday’s flower is getting ready.Day Lily 01 - _0715 600x600
Friday morning… Thursday’s flower is almost gone, but Friday’s is almost ready to open. Day Lily 02 - _0717 600x600
Friday morning… Thursday’s flower has dropped off.  But Friday’s is growing.Day Lily 03 - _0721 600x600

Friday afternoon… Friday’s flower is in full bloom.  Yesterday’s blessing is gone, but God provides for today.
