Great is Thy faithfulness!

“Great is Thy faithfulness. O God my Father. There is no shadow of turning with Thee. 

Thou changest not. Thy compassions they fail not. As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be…

Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed Your hand has provided…

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide, 

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!”

Penned by Thomas Chisolm in 1923 who suffered with debilitating health issues his entire life, this hymn is his testimony and echoes the Scripture, 

“The LORD’s loving kindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-26)

Like Thomas, never forget the unfailing faithfulness of your covenant-keeping God. He has given you many wonderful displays of His providing care. Be filled with astonishing gratefulness and let your heart “sing of the mercies of the LORD forever” and with your mouth “make known (His) faithfulness.” (Psalm 89:1; Numbers 23:19; 1 Peter 5:6-7)

He is your Strength. He is your Hope. He is your Help. (Psalm 42:11, 62:5; Romans 15:13)

Great is His faithfulness!

Great is His faithfulness, toward you!
