God Is Faithful

1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
         And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
 2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
         And Your faithfulness every night, (Ps. 92:1-2).

Faithfulness means to give praise to God when the heavens are as steel and the words do not roll easy from the tongue. We all have these days and find it very hard to bow down before the Lord. But for a moment, maybe we should consider if the shoes were on the other foot. How does God feel when He does not hear from us? How does He respond?

22 Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed,
      Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
is Your faithfulness. (Lam. 3:22-23)

Simple enough, His mercies are new every morning. Today I will give thanks to my God as I breathe the air He provides and as I enjoy the comfort of His promises. I may not understand all of His ways and for sure, I was never meant to. I am so glad that my salvation came as a result of faith. Because by it, I have hope. God rarely allows us to see what we will not like, but He does allow us to love what we do not see and that my friend is faith. By faith the Lord is our refuge. He is our Rock and the surety of better things. I will hope in Him. I will lay my heart with all of its brokenness at His feet. There I will leave it, for I know, that when He gives it back to me it will be healed.

God Bless! Trust Him today!
