“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
There is a great hope found in knowing that God’s grace and mercies abound to us every single day – and they are new every morning. Each waking moment reminds us of His unrelenting love and faithfulness.
Dr. Phil Barfoot invites us to delve deeper into God’s Word with this new devotional book, New Every Morning. Published just a month ago, this book calls for 365 days of worship – our ultimate response to God’s amazing grace.
Written by 118 premiere worship pastors, music ministers, and Christian university professors across America, New Every Morning is raw, fresh, and dynamic. Each page is filled with truth from God’s inerrant Word, and offers us to see it from a new perspective from day to day. While other devotional books tend to have shallow content and fillers, this one is meaty with messages that will surely encourage, bless, and edify readers.
New Every Morning is versatile, and this is what I love most about this book. As much as it is great for private devotionals, it is also perfect for small group studies. Its content encourages discussion, reflection, and application. Devotionals are divided into weeks and each contains, first and foremost, the Word of God for the day, the message/exhortation of the author, reflection questions, and a closing prayer. Devotionals on Wednesdays and Sundays are specifically tailored for those in music and worship ministries. As a worship leader in our local church, I really find this a great resource and help.
I love this devotional book. Although its release came a few months shy of 2020, there’s no better time to begin the journey but now. Don’t wait for the new year to start reading a beautiful devotional book like this. Highly recommended!
