God is merciful

“Today is a good day for a good day” has become a popular phrase recently. It might seem cliche. But cliches are cliche because they are true.

God’s mercy is new every morning (Lamentations 3:23). Each day, God reveals His mercy to us in a way that we haven't ever experienced before.

When we wake up, we have a decision to make. We can embrace God’s mercy and choose to have a good day. Or, we can dwell on yesterday’s sin and struggles, and choose to have a bad day.

God is merciful. God’s merciful compassion is infinite and inexhaustible. God demonstrated His mercifulness by sending Jesus to take the judgment that was rightfully ours. God waits and works now for all people to turn to Jesus and to live under His justification (2 Peter 3:9).

Each day, we wake up anew and we start fresh. It doesn't matter what we did yesterday, God’s mercy is available to us today. We have been given a clean slate. The question is what will you do with it?


  • Is there an area of your life where what seems like God’s inaction might be His mercy?
  • How does understanding that God is merciful change your view of who He is and how He works in our lives?
