I woke up thinking about the old hymn, Great Is Thy Faithfulness. While I rarely sing it now, it’s pressed into my soul from my long-ago childhood days. The song reminds me that regardless of how hard life becomes, God is faithful and will provide a way to get through it all.
When God’s faithfulness is focused on, there’s a shift in how the details of the day are perceived:
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. Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)
And, there’s a shift in how the day is managed:
God is faithful . . . I will believe.
God is faithful . . . I will not fear.
God is faithful . . . I will press on.
God is faithful . . . I will be grateful.
God is faithful . . . I will choose to live this as the best day ever.
Focus on God’s faithfulness today. Sing it. Declare it: Great is Your Faithfulness.
