“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3: 22-23
Does it not amaze you, just how much the Lord loves you? So many times we have gone away from Him and done things that we know have caused Him pain, yet His mercies, love, and compassion never fail. Every day we experience His goodness in abundance. He is such a faithful God.
Even when we are not faithful, He is.
God loves us more than we would ever know, understand or believe. God tells us in the Book of Jeremiah, “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love.” There was never a time when He did not love us and there will never be a time when he does not love us. Such knowledge is just too wonderful for words. It is His love for us that kept Him on the cross and it is love for us that compels Him to forgive us time and time again. It is His nature to love because He is Love.
Out of this love issues His faithfulness. We can depend on God to do what He says He will do. As Abraham discovered when he received the promise of his son after waiting for many years, He that had promised is faithful.
You may be waiting for the fulfillment of a promise that you received from the Lord. Don’t give up, and don’t give in. Remember His faithfulness to Israel. Remember His faithfulness to Abraham. Remember His faithfulness to those who chose to trust in Him. Keep declaring to yourself, “He who has promised is faithful.”
Believe the faithfulness of God in your heart and confess it with your mouth. Hold fast to the confession of your faith. Be steadfast. Be immovable. God is faithful. He will not fail you. Great is His faithfulness!
Awesome God, You truly are faithful. Today I stand on Your Word and place my trust in Your unfailing love. Thank You for being a God that I could depend upon. Thank You for all that You have done, doing and about to do. I promise to keep my trust in You and believe that all You have promised You will do. Amen.
