Fading Wonder

A few weeks ago I was given a security/access code at work, a privilege. The most frequently used advantage of this was the ability to use the restroom without going to another building. The initial wonder of such a privilege quickly faded. I now leave and return almost without noticing the wonder of being employed here for less than a year and having access to almost all of the information technology.

I think it’s good that it quickly faded though. It is a bit of a lesson for us that our earthly wonder fades but our wonder in the glory of God never should.

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22-23

What great and unfading wonder it is that the love of the LORD never ceases for His people, nor do His mercies to them – they are new, every morning. We should have a great wonder and awe in the presence of our God. Through Jesus Christ we see the great love with which He loved us, the extent of His mercy and how faithful and just He is to forgive us anew each day (1 John 1:9)!
