A new devotional resource for people going through tragedy is now available from LCMS Disaster Response, The Lord’s Mercy Endures Forever: 40 Daily Devotions of God’s Comfort.

 Jesus said, “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Even as little children, we learn that life isn’t fair. Every day, we face the consequences of sin and brokenness in our lives, from illnesses to disasters to other tragedies. These events often leave us struggling financially, physically and spiritually.

But no matter what comes our way, we have the assurance that the victory has already been won for us. Jesus paid the ultimate price on the cross so that we might be with Him in heaven for all eternity.

Thanks to the generous members of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), we are able to provide this devotional book free of charge. These 40 devotions — which each include a Scripture passage, a meditation, a prayer and a hymn — are focused on bringing God’s comfort and peace to those who are struggling after a disaster or other crisis.

Although this resource is distinctly Christian, it is intended for anyone who is suffering from the brokenness of this world.

I pray that through it, you will be reminded that God loves and cares about you, even when it is hard to understand what is going on around you. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Rom. 15:13).
