Great really is Thy faithfulness. It’s not just a really good song. It’s not just a really good idea. It’s not just a really good verse. It’s really true.
I can think of more situations than I care to admit to of my unfaithfulness, yet even more I can still think of examples of God’s faithfulness towards me. Of course, the Bible gives us examples of His faithfulness throughout the entire book, but there’s nothing liker personally knowing His faithfulness to you.
How many times did He forgive the Israelites? How many times do we put a palm to our heads in disbelief of their wayward faith or lack thereof?
And yet, if I need an example of God’s faithfulness, I need look no further than the pages in my own life story. God is so faithful. He’s faithful even when I’m not. In fact, He’s especially faithful when I’m not, because it would have to be indescribable love (and patience) that could make that possible.
There’s a reason God’s mercies are new every day. Because every day, I need His mercy. While I am growing and maturing, every day, I seem to manage to cook myself up into such a mess, that I need a new batch of mercy. And I am so grateful that He is so faithful to give it, every day.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT)
22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.
