It’s 5 o’clock somewhere
just read that sentence and you can hear the song in your head. Or if you can’t, click on the video. Enjoy. I’ll wait.
A concept that resonates with just about everyone. We all get it.
Somewhere in the world, it just turned 5 o’clock, so its okay to let loose, party and perhaps consume an adult beverage or three.
Fun idea, and not too difficult to understand.
Now I want you to consider applying this concept to a Bible verse.
yes, a Bible verse.
Lamentations 3: 22 & 23 (ESV) to be exact
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end
They are new every morning
Great is your faithfulness
How many times have we heard people say “His mercies are new every morning” and mentally applied it like this:
“wow, I really messed up today, but tomorrow I can start fresh”
“ugh it’s only 9:47 a.m. ! Today has started off horrible! So glad tomorrow will be better”
The earth is round.
You are on the earth.
the sun is coming up SOMEWHERE
Claim it right now. His Mercies are new right now.
You don’t have to wait till tomorrow for the Faithfulness and Mercy of our Living God.
This is one thing it is okay to be impatient for.
