Verse of the Week
…Great is Thy faithfulness.
Four little words. So much comfort!
These words were spoken by Jeremiah — the weeping prophet. Acknowledging the great faithfulness of the LORD (Yehovah) brought hope and comfort to him when he recalled this truth during dark times (the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem because of the unfaithfulness of God’s people).
Do you need hope and comfort in your circumstances? Does peace and safety seem out of reach? The remedy can be as simple as pondering and meditating upon the goodness of our Father, recalling His great faithfulness. Paul wrote to Timothy, “If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful, since He cannot deny Himself.” (2 Timothy 2:13)
In this time of uncertainty after a year of almost constant calamity, we can easily lament our circumstances and fall into fear and despair, or we can consider the faithfulness of Yehovah who is our hope, comfort, salvation, healing; our all in all! As Jeremiah reminded himself that God’s mercies and compassions are unfailing and renewed every morning, remember that you get a fresh start in your walk with God every morning!
Live it out this Week
Meditate on God’s faithfulness by reading and speaking the promises from His Word that assure us of His longsuffering, gracious goodness and everlasting love toward us, even though we are prone to wander.
Read and consider Lamentations 3:21-26.
“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. Through Yehovah’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Your faithfulness. Yehovah is my portion, says my soul, therefore I hope in Him. Yehovah is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of Yehovah.”
Ask the Father to daily remind you of His love and grace for you.

Father, thank You for reminding me that I can still hope in You, because Your compassion and mercy never fail. Thank You that you are always faithful. Give me grace and strength to walk worthy of Your faithfulness this week, and every day of my life. In Yeshua’s name. Amen
