God is Faithful
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
God is Faithful
Today’s promise was the inspiration for one of the greatest hymns of our faith.
Every morning God gives you a new start. Each day represents a new beginning of God’s grace, compassion, and lovingkindness in your life.
This promise came during a difficult time in the life of Jeremiah and the people of God. After a long period of lament, Jeremiah remembers the faithfulness of God.
The word “lovingkindness” used in this promise means God’s commitment love.
I wish my life had been one straight trajectory to spiritual maturity. I wish I could say my walk with God is one constant “Hallelujah!” But like everyone else, I have days when I fail, fall, and sin.
This verse reminds you that you will never deplete God’s love and grace toward you. Every day God’s love for you is renewed and replenished.
No matter who you are or what you have done, you will never deplete God’s love for you. You will not push God so far that He will break his promise to you. His steadfast love and mercy will always be with you.
Great is Thy Faithfulness
Looking back on my life, I see a God whose patience and love for me have been without end. Just like Jeremiah, I must declare, “Great is Thy Faithfulness!”
Many of us know this promise from the hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” The hymn was written almost 100 years ago by Methodist minister Thomas Chrisholm.
In a letter written late in his life, he wrote, “I must not fail to record here the unfailing faithfulness of a covenant-keeping God and that He has given me many wonderful displays of His providing care, for which I am filled with astonishing gratefulness.”
All of us could join Thomas in confessing how good and faithful God has been to us.
“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.”
If you are discouraged today, here is one thought that can overcome despair, “God is faithful.”
Look at that promise again.
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:23
Make these confessions.
- I can never deplete the love of God.
- His love for me is renewed every morning.
- God is faithful, even when I am not.
- Thank you, God, for your great faithfulness to me.
In Jesus’ Name,
Every morning is a new beginning of God’s faithfulness to you.
