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
A report by KPMG on loyalty programs in Canada discovered that “A loyalty program is only the first step to building a deeper, more meaningful and longer-term relationship with customers. Retailers risk missing the opportunity to convert transactions into points-free relationships so strong that even if the program disappears, customers will still come back. As many as 60% of Canadians say points programs and rewards are not important in keeping them steadfast to a brand.”
The world in which we live can be a real challenge. Each of us have days when we are overwhelmed by the pressures of life. The Bible gives many promises to the followers of Jesus about God’s faithfulness during the difficult times. One of these promises is found in Lamentations 3:22-23: “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.” I often wonder how those who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ get through the difficult times that come our way. It is in the difficult times that Jesus’ presence gives us the hope that carries us through. As Jeremiah says here, it is because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed. Over and over, we experience God’s faithfulness. As we enter into 2023, you can count on Him walking through this year with you. No matter what you face this year, God’s faithfulness will be new every morning. Other people may let you down, but God’s compassion will never fail you. Commit your life to Jesus today and every day this year, and you will experience His abiding compassion and faithfulness.
These have been words from the heart.
