See His Faithfulness and be Strengthened

Posted on Posted in devotions

“Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning” Lamentations 3:23, NLT.

The refrain of this gospel hymn came to me one morning, and all I could do was stand still, lift my hands and thank the Lord.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

The faithfulness of God is one of the most treasured aspects of His character and nature. When we are faithless, He remains faithful. Even when we lose our way, He is faithful to come to our rescue. He is always seeking us out, always bearing us up, always lifting our head, always providing everything we need.

See His faithfulness today and let it comfort your mind and calm your emotions. Let the faithfulness that God has displayed through the years encourage you in knowing that He will do it again. Yes, Jesus gave His life once, but He will rescue you over and over again. Yes, He may have came to the earth and died and rose once, never to have to do it again, but He is faithful to love you over and over. He will continue to be faithful until you understand this amazing attribute of His heart. God is faithful, and it has nothing to do with you. It’s who He is. It’s His nature. Trust in the faithfulness of your God.

When it looks favorable and when it looks hopeless, when you receive good news and when you receive devastating news, when you feel like a young again and when you feel like you can barely stand, see God’s faithfulness and let it strengthen you.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for your faithfulness in my life. It’s who you are. Thank you that you won’t stop loving me, you won’t stop showing mercy to me, you won’t stop protecting me, you won’t stop providing everything I need. You won’t stop being my God and lifting me into your arms. I love that you are faithful, and I love that you are mine, and I am yours.
