Great is Your Faithfulness

Remember my affliction and my wanderings, the wormwood and the gall! My soul continually remembers it and is bowed down within me. But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
(Lam 3:19-25)

These are my life verses.  They are a constant reminder to me of the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness.  He provision and love bestowed on me is so overwhelming that at times I am simply lost for words.  It does not matter whether I facing affliction or prosperity, the fact of the matter is that I can always remember that God’s love is steadfast and unending.  He is faithful no matter what I have.  I can praise Him for His love and His mercy.  He is the one in whom I have placed my hope.  In Christ alone will I trust my soul and wait.  But their is a condition for me to follow.  I must seek Him.  I must wait upon Him.  What does this entail?  It simply means trusting God to work and not trying to do everything myself.  Does this mean that I don’t work at all?  No, in fact it means that I press on in the direction that God has called me, but ready to change course at His bidding.  But no matter where I am I can rest assured in the hope that I have in the Lord, because “His mercies are new every morning; great is His faithfulness”.
