His Compassions Fail Not

There’s Mercy and Grace for YOU


IT doesn’t so much matter WHERE you are right now…. as much as WHERE you are heading. Get those hands and heart up to Heaven…. praise the name of Jesus from right where you are ….. know that God is merciful …… simply take Him at His Word.

“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22 It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.” Lamentation 3:21-24

Your eternity with Christ and the Father are worth fighting for – “FIGHT the good fight of faith.” (1 Timothy 6:12) Jesus purchased this for you with His own blood and has your very name placed on the banqueting table where we will celebrate Him and out eternity with Him at the Great Supper of the Lamb (Matthew 22; Revelation 19). The alternative is unthinkable, unalterable, irrevocable incarceration in the blistering burning fires of hell (Mark 9:43-49; Revelation 20:11-15). He gives each of us the choice (Joshua 24:15). To be there at the glorious inaugural reception celebrate requires that we do all things in this life HIS way and not our own (1 Samuel 15:22-23; Psalms 40:8; 119:133; Proverbs 3:5-7; Romans 6:16; 11:20-22; Revelation 1:3; 22:14, etc.).

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Revelation 22:14 

The precious blood of Jesus Christ is greater than your sin and the inward bent, the iniquity that led you to commit the sin! (1 Peter 1:18-19) Tpday is your day to take it to the throne of His grace (Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 1:9).

Taking our lives to the throne of His grace means 2 things:

  1. mercy and full forgivenss for our sins
  2. divine grace to influence and change our hearts in order to be established in His righteousness.

“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:14-16

Jesus is the Great High Priest who every lives to provide for His children what He died to purchase for them! Everything God commanded and fully requires from those who are His and will be with Him eternally, He has provided His grace, His divine enablement to accomplish.

***Can anyone else relate to needing this following blessed passage?

“Remembering mine affliction and my misery, the wormwood and the gall. 20 My soul hath them still in remembrance, and is humbled in me. 21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 22 It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.” Lamentation 3:19-24

The divine promise that “his compassions fail not” is exclusively and only to those who are known of Him – in Christ’s eternal kingdom.

You don’t truly think you are alive due to any goodness of your own, do you?

“He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.” Psalms 103:10

“Know therefore that God exacteth (required) of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.” Job 11:6

“If thou, Lord , shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?” Psalms 130:3

Paul was bent on not being found in the end “having mine own righteousness” which is “as filthy rags” in the LORD’s holy sight.

“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6

Hint: You were NEVER worthy to receive God’s mercy. He freely gives it to those who come unto Him…. in their filthy rags righteousness (Isaiah 64:7).

“Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly (that’s you!), his faith is counted for righteousness.” Romans 4:4-5

Sinful self-righteousness has no place in the life of a disciple of Jesus. Matthew 21:31

To trust in any supposed or false righteousness that is not the very Person and redemption of Jesus Christ, is to brazenly despise the Almighty by saying Christ came in vain (Galatians 2:21).

Isn’t it better to admit our utter and perpetual need for Him than to feign to be sinless perfection? God be praised for His holy throne of grace and mercy through the blood of Jesus which continual cleanses those who continue in honest heart to come to the light (Luke 8:15; Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 1:7-2:2).

In fact, I am personally leery of those who never admit to faults or perhaps sins. This is a sign of those who are are modern pharisees among us. Their sin is self-righteousness and pride. I’m not talking about making excuses for sinning, that’s another gross error. No, I’m talking about confessing our own utter, desperate need for God’s saving mercy and grace daily.

The absence of a “poor” or desperate for more of Christ “spirit” is the clear indicator that the self-righteous person is trusting in self and not Christ.

“Blessed are the poor (desperate, beggar, pauper) in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3

The phrase “poor in spirit” speaks of being in a perpetual heart posture of being desperate for the LORD, being fully dependent upon Him as a beggar, a pauper.

A red flag goes up with “false brethren” or “swine” who come along touting Bible verses but never admit to having great and continual need for the LORD’s saving mercies and “compassions” which “fail not.” Yes, divine mercy ever flows to bless, cleanse, and to sanctify those who continue to trust in His mercy through Jesus Christ (Lamentations 3:22; 1 John 1:7). See Matthew 7:1-6; 2 Corinthians 11:26; Galatians 2:4. Beloved, make no mistake: We know from 2 Corinthians 11:26 and Galatians 2:4 that “false brethren” are a reality and have crept in undetected to bring us into “bondage.” Satan is not without his human agents who pose as believers in Jesus and we must become more proficient at detecting them (2 Corinthians 11:12-15).

“The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” Proverbs 15:3

It’s laughable to vainly imagine that anyone anywhere is hiding ANYthing from the Almighty!!! He created and owns this Universe. Nothing exists that the LORD Himself didn’t personally created. In HIS earth there are cameras everywhere from every angle … and He even knows the motives and intentions of our hearts. Best to get honest. Repent. Settle out of court, now, before it’s too late.

We can’t hide our sins for faults from God, can we? Interestingly, speaking specifically concerning false shepherds, Jeremiah wrote:

“Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:24

Honesty is a must in the divine economy. David was honest as is every disciple who is the remnant of Christ, ready for His soon return:

“Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. 2I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. 3I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God. 4They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away. 5O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.” Psalms 69:1-5

Better to be “honest” and admit sins before it’s too late, right? In Luke 8:15 Jesus spoke to us of the “HONEST and good heart” which is the heart of the true, few remnant.

David, the man after God’s own heart, cried out:

“The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” Psalms 138:8

Through the blood of His only begotten Son, God made provision for redemption, initial forgiveness of sins, and perfection or maturity and holiness in the lives of His blessed saints. Such blessings are appropriated by honesty, trusting by faith the LORD, allowing Him to perfect that which concerns our lives. “Let go and let God” is a good saying.

“The LORD (not us) will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” Psalms 138:8

As we truly abide in Christ, the Father is working in us both to will and to do of His blessed good pleasure!

“… work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13

PRAYER: Holy Father, You are the Potter and I am Your clay. Please pour the water of Your Holy Spirit on my heart to make me poor and pure in heart. Please grant me to have an heart of flesh. Take away the stony places of my heart which were caused by my own rebellion, my own sin – namely self-righteousness, self-idolatry, pride, and unbelief. Please have Your way in  my life. Here and now, I lay my life in Your hands. From this moment forward, not my will but Thine be done dear Jesus! Now please use me to help, to lift up the downtrodden. In Jesus’ name, amen.
