Because of His Faithfulness

 




Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His mercies fail not. They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness. Lamentations3:22-23 (NKJV)


Did you ever have ‘one of those days’ when nothing went the way you planned or wanted it to go? Because we are human, we all have them. Not sleeping at night, forgetting where you put something you need to function, needing to alter plans to accommodate someone else are just a few of the ones we could face in our days.


Because we belong to God, we can function in spite of the plans that go awry. He blesses us with the strength to continue with what we need to do.


My study Bible lists some advantages because of God’s faithfulness:


*We can have confidence when we pray.

*We can conquer evil and temptation.

*We can praise Him.

*We can have courage when we are afraid.(1)


We all must rely on His faithfulness as we go through our lives. When we do we become stronger in our witness and testimony for God.

  1. Short and powerful Cecelia, what you shared here. If we can do it all in our own strength, God wouldn't get the glory. We need Him, we need to become fully dependent on Him!
