Great is His faithfulness

Lamentations 3:23
God is not like man. He is the epitome of consistency. God is consistently God, and consistently good.
His Word is perfect, complete, without lack. It will never pass away.
Knowing the God that we serve and knowing the Word he has spoken, gives us hope; even in the midst of chaos, God's will is unfolding, and the end result will be better than we could have orchestrated or imagined.
God the creator, the most powerful force in existence, the all-knowing, ever-present master of all, is not taken by surprise by the circumstances we face in life. With one word, he can uproot a mountain from the bottom of the sea. With one thought he can change the color of the sun. The possibilities are endless. Nothing is impossible with God. What you, as a child of God, may be experiencing is perfectly ordered by a perfect God.
While there is a grand list of people and things that may fail us,  Jesus never fails. It's because of his mercies that we are not consumed. You are in the hands of a loving God, whose compassions never fail. You can without a doubt, trust Him.
Great is His faithfulness.
"Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise
Just to know, thus sayeth the Lord"
-Louisa M.R. Stead
