Ready for Day Seven of the faithfulness of our God series? I won’t keep you waiting. I have been eager to share this one with you.
Day One: Faithfulness in Psalm 36:5. To the clouds!
Day Two: Faithfulness in Psalm 89:1. Make it known to the next generation!
Day Three: Faithfulness in Psalm 89:8. Indescribably amazing!
Day Four: Faithfulness in Psalm 92:1-2. Spot it at the end of your day if you’re not distracted.
Day Five: Faithfulness in Psalm 119:89-90. Look around and see the Lord’s object lessons.
Day Six: Faithfulness in Isaiah 25:1. Just as He planned and purposed!
Day Seven: Faithfulness in Lamentations 3:22-24. His best on my worst days!
“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.”
It was the worst of times for Jeremiah.
The people of Judah would not listen to his messages.
They kept on sinning and now God’s judgment was unfolding.
Jerusalem was falling and the Temple would be destroyed by the invading Babylonians.
Lamentations consists of five mournful, melancholy poems in which Jeremiah cries out in sorrow and anguish to the Lord. In the midst of the profound sorrow, the writer looks up and there are God’s compassions failing not but being renewed every morning. God’s faithfulness is great. It’s huge. I don’t know how else to write it, friend. God’s faithfulness is something we can celebrate every day. But I can tell you from personal experience that on your worst of days God’s faithfulness is huge. It is just like the Lord reminding us, “On your worst of days, here is My best!”
For today: God’s faithfulness speaks of His firmness, being stedfast, and fully trustworthy. He indeed is just exactly that in the best of times and the worst of times.
