“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” Lamentations 3:21-26, NIV
I have used this scripture once all ready in the last two weeks, but I am beginning with it again today for one reason: He is faithful! When everything else fails, He is still faithful! This week we are going to be focusing on faith, faithfulness, faith filled lives, and the reward of our faith. Are you ready for a faith filled journey this week?
This scripture has been a rock to me, literally. It has reminded to look back, make an account of all the places that God has been faithful to me. Then apply that to my present day or my future. Knowing that God is the same yesterday, today and forever I can rest assured that He will be faithful to me today and every day ahead of me. That isn’t a promise that things will go the way I want, but it is a place of confidence that He will walk me through whatever is ahead of me.
What is ahead of you today? Do you need to be reminded of God’s amazing grace and faithfulness in your life? Give an account, put it on paper, all the moments where his faithfulness has been evident in your life. When doubt overwhelms you or fear in the moment causes your heart to beat wildly, be reminded of His hand on your life.
Let’s work out our faith today by giving thanks together. I would love to hear how God has been faithful to you!
