Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand has provided
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me”
I woke this morning with these words in my head. I haven’t sung that song in ages! I can only believe that the Lord put it there as a reminder for the day. I love it when He gives me something to meditate on for the day. As I came to the end of the chorus, the first verse popped into my mind so I sang it. Then the second, and the third verse too!
“Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with thee
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not
As thou hast been, Thou forever will be”
“Summer and winter and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love”
“Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and glad hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine and ten thousand besides”
It reminds me that God is just faithful…..He’s FAITHFUL! He is completely dependable, devoted, steadfast, enduring, unchanging, unswerving, unwavering and true!
Always, at every moment, in every situation, in every trial, in every joy, in every sorrow, in every second of every day of my past, present and future, He’s faithful!
Even when I don’t recognize or acknowledge His faithfulness, He’s faithful!
Even when I'm unfaithful, He's faithful!
Even when things are really, really hard and I can’t seem to find His faithfulness, He’s faithful!
Even when I don’t understand the why, how, or when(s) of life, He’s faithful!
Even in death, He is faithful!
He is faithful. He is FAITHFUL! HE IS FAITHFUL!
