Where To Find A second Chance In Life. Lamentations 3: 22, 23.

Do you ever wish you could have a second chance?

"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, For his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22, 23. NIV.

CONTEXT
This verse comes from Lamentations where the prophet is grieving over the sins of God's people and their judgment.

GREAT LOVE
God’s love is not just love but “great love.” It is beyond measure, it is not small or temporary and it is bigger broader, more powerful, than our deepest need. His love holds back the judgment we deserve.

COMPASSION
Friends, family, and society may not understand our pain but God's “compassions never fail.” He fully comprehends the hurt we feel. We never need to say “Look you don’t get it, I feel this way.” Not only does He understand our pain and loss but God is active in His love. He provides mercies and blessings in our dark hours.We can come to Him every time and still find Him compassionate.

INFINITE COMPASSION
The word “compassions” is plural. God is infinite therefore His compassions must be infinite. These compassions are “new every morning.” They are never use up or worn out. You can wear down human love but not God’s. His compassions are fresh and every day is a new beginning.

FAITHFULNESS
God’s faithfulness means He keeps His promises to his people. He has promised His love to those who come to him. The faithfulness of God is measureless; it is deeper, wider, stronger, and brighter than any calculation. His faithfulness can’t be broken by anything we can do and it can’t be worn down by this life. Never will we say it has ended because it is beyond time. We may feel that we have squandered God’s love and lost it; but those feelings are wrong, the truth is- Great is God's faithfulness.

This day, even this moment is an opportunity for a second chance, it is a chance to turn and do right. Knowing that every day is a fresh start with God gives us hope and courage to put yesterday behind and make a fresh beginning.
