“Great Is Thy Faithfulness!”

When things get tough, Satan can lead us to think that God has forgotten us. Satan can work in our minds and make us think that God doesn’t care. But that is not true: God does care.
Jeremiah experienced this. Jeremiah was a prophet whom God used to warn Judah to remove their idols and return to God. Jeremiah told them if they didn’t repent and return to God they would be punished. Jeremiah warned them repeatedly. But they didn’t listen and Judah was taken away into Babylonian exile.
As Jeremiah watched the people being taken away, His heart sank. Jeremiah said, “Remember my affliction and my wandering the wormwood and the bitterness. Surely my soul remembers and is bowed down within me.”
Think about what Jeremiah has said; “…my soul remembers and is bowed down within me.” Jeremiah was down. Has you soul ever been bowed down within you? For most of us, it has. Life can be tough and we can experience depression!
But then, Jeremiah says, “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope.” What did Jeremiah remember? He remembered the steadfast love of the Lord. He says, “The Lord’s lovingkindness never ceases… His compassions never fail…They are new every morning… Great is Thy faithfulness.”
As Judah was being led away into captivity, Jeremiah is reminded that God still loves Judah… and that there is hope in the future… “Great is Thy faithfulness.”
There is an old hymn we used to sing that went;
“Great is Thy faithfulness, Oh Lord my Father.
There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
Thou changest not, Thy compassions they fail not.
As Thou hast been Thou Forever Will Be.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Great is Thy faithfulness.
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hands have provided.
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto Thee.”
You can be going through tough times. The devil may be causing you to think that God doesn’t care. God does care. God is faithful!
