Tearing Down the Seawall Around My Soul

ImageThe prophet Jeremiah tells us in Lamentations that the mercies of the Lord are new every morning. In other words, grace, like the tide, continues to wash into, over and through our hearts day after day.

Part of my problem is that my flesh builds sea walls around my soul. It speaks to me, “You can’t be loved. God doesn’t treasure you. He can hardly tolerate you.” But as consider the cross, I know those words to be lies.

In order to fight the good fight of faith, today as we gather in the presence of God, let’s repent of our sea walls by tearing them down and opening ourselves afresh to the new mercies of God that speak of a transformative love that will not let us go. It is God’s heart for us today that we receive and rest again in the “it is finished” work of Jesus. We are his. So, let’s receive, rest, remember and rejoice!
