The Faithfulness of God

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. (Lam 3:22-23) 

Our lives are filled with busyness and with day-to-day activities. Even when we are not going and doing, it seems that our minds are still in a race. Many of our thoughts are about changing circumstances or about what the future may hold for us or our loved ones. We constantly strive and struggle to maintain some sense of consistency and dependability in our lives. We seek after things that will give us safety, security, and stability. Though our world is ever-changing, the scripture passage reminds us “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.” We can count on His unchanging, steadfast love. His steadfast love is like unto Himself. It is infinite, eternal, and everlasting. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is unchanging, and in His steadfastness, we can have peace. Throughout the book of Lamentations, we can see the steadfastness of God’s character as loving, compassionate, faithful, and merciful. His love for man never changes and “never ceases.” For the child of God, “His mercies never…end, they are new every morning.” C.H. Spurgeon writes that “His mercy is so great that it forgives great sins to great sinners after great lengths of time and then gives great favors and great privileges and raises us up to great enjoyments in the great heaven of the great God.” Nowhere greater is His steadfast love and mercy more divinely demonstrated than through His Son who laid down His life that none should perish but might be saved and have eternal life (Jn 3:16). Nothing in this world compares to the love and hope we find in Jesus Christ. Dear friend, Jesus is all we ever need. He is the faithfulness of God. Father thank You for Your love and Your endless mercy and faithfulness. In the blessed Name of Jesus. Amen
