Have you ever had a bad day? Some days start badly (the alarm clock fails to go off; you oversleep; it’s a constant rush from the minute you get up) and then progress from bad to worse (everything seems to break down; the milk is off; the car won’t start; the kids are arguing). Some days seem like a nightmare from which you cannot wake up.
Most of us are familiar with that scenario, but the good news is that God never has a bad day! God never gets grumpy or irritable. He is never exhausted from lack of sleep or worn down by squabbling. He is never moody or capricious. God never changes, and because of this, we can face today with a sense of relief and security and stability. No matter what goes wrong, no matter who shouts at us, no matter how bad the news gets, we can rest secure in God’s unfailing love and know that His mercies are new every morning. (Lam 3:22-23)
