In Malachi 3:6a God says, "For I am the LORD, I change not…” Really? You and I change. Companies change. Governments and laws change. However, for the believer, we read in Hebrews 13:8 that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
Lamentations 3:22-23, "It is because of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion's fail not. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness."
“Great is thy faithfulness O God my Father,
There is no Shadow of turning with thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassion, they fail not.
As thou has 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 hand hath provided.
GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS LORD UNTO ME."
Thank God He is ALWAYS faithful to His PROMISES. Understanding this fact is the key to the life of faith that we long to experience. When we realize that God is faithful to every promise He has made in the Bible—even the smallest ones tucked into obscure paragraphs of Scripture—it instantly revamps our perspective.
Thank God He is ALWAYS faithful to His PLAN. At times over the years, especially during changes in ministry, I have questioned God’s plans and why certain things happened in an adverse way. However, two profound scriptures guided my path.
In Psalm 31:14-15 we read, “But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. (15) My times are in thy hand…”
In Proverbs 3:5-6 we read, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (6) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Our heartaches cannot be downplayed. They often cannot be understood. But God is bigger than our burdens, and He is always faithful to His providential plans for our days.
Thank God He is ALWAYS faithful to His PEOPLE. How important it is to remember that truth during a season of thanksgiving. Someone said:
"When trials come, remember that God is faithful. Contrary to what your circumstances may seem to tell you, God hasn't abandoned you. Forget what the cynics tell you. God hasn't forgotten you. God is faithful. We can trust that He's working out His purposes for our ultimate good.”
This is the time of year our minds are on thanksgiving; but come what may don't grow frenzied, troubled, or panicked. You're under God's providential care.
Our God is faithful to His promises; His plans, and His people.
He is faithful to you. He always has been; He always will be. Amen! and Amen!
