God's Great Faithfulness!

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. (Lam. 3:22) 

The LORD'S mercies never cease.
The LORD'S compassions never fail. 
The LORD'S faithfulness never diminishes. 

That defines God's immutability, which is a four-bit word for "He doesn't change." . . . He never cools off in His commitment to us. He never breaks a promise or loses enthusiasm. He stays near us when we are jealous for the truth, and He stays near us when we reject His counsel and deliberately disobey. . . . His faithfulness is unconditional, unending, and unswerving. Nothing we do can diminish it, and nothing we stop doing can increase it. . . . Mysterious though such incredible constancy may seem, it's true. 

The Mystery of God's Will 

God's faithfulness is indeed great! 

His faithfulness is so great that it is unwavering. There will never be anyone (past, present, and future) who will be as faithful as God. There will be moments in our Christian walk in which it may feel as if God is no longer there with us. It may even feel like He has rejected us and forsook us in spite of God's Word telling us the contrary. 

We must always remind ourselves of God's sovereignty during times of great distress. His sovereignty is always going to serve as a reminder that His faithfulness endures forever. His faithfulness never stops working in the lives of His children. We may not always understand God's faithfulness. We may not always understand the timing of His faithfulness in our lives. All we can do as obedient children of God is to take God's faithfulness at face value and trust in His perfect timing. I say this because that is exactly where I am right now in my Christian walk and I'm confident in the Lord that there are numerous other Christians that are confronted with the same situation. With that said, I want to encourage you to look up the lyrics to the song titled "Great Is Thy Faithfulness". The words of that song speak profound truths of God's faithfulness and will forever change your outlook of His faithfulness as it has changed mine.  

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
