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.

“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!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,

Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,

Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;

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

Sometimes a daily devotional does not have to be anything more than a powerful song. The lyrics are simply truth. I urge you today to google a version of the song that you like. My favorite is by the group Selah.  

I hope that you can see and believe that God is faithful forever. He doesn't change. He made promises to love and keep us to Him and he does.  Have a wonderful day today reflecting on the love of our Father.
