“Great Is Thy Faithfulness”

I love hymns and hymn stories and one of my favorite old hymns is, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.” The song grows out of a text in Lamentations 3. Jeremiah was depressed, discouraged… he was questioning the Lord… but then, he was reminded of the faithful love of the Lord.”
Jeremiah wrote; “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning” (Lam. 3:22-23).
Notice Jeremiah says, “The faithful love of the Lord never ceases… His mercies never cease..His mercies are new every morning.” God’s love never ends. I am so thankful for that and I know you are. God’s mercies are new every morning.
That means, that we never exhaust God’s grace. There are times when maybe we have had to be patiet with a person about something. But, we may get to a point where we say, “I’m over this… I’m done.” But God never does that with us. His love never ceases.
That means that, even if you have messed up life… and it doesn’t matter how much you have messed up… God still loves us. Whatever is in your past… regardless how dark or terrible you may think it is… God loves you and will forgive you and save you.
Even when we think God is finished with us… His mercies are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness.
Maybe you are going through a time when money is tight… you are having some doubts… you are hoping that God is going to come through… remember,
“Great is Thy faithfulness.”
