Daily Bible Verse - 1/1/2008 - Lamentations 3:22-23

NIV Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.

KJV 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.
NASB The LORD'S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23

God's faithfulness is a commitment on His part and is as dependable as the scheduled appearances of the sun and moon (Ps. 89:2, 5, 36, 37). When you wake up in the morning, God will always be there. Family and friends may disappoint; heroes and heroines may fail to live up to expectations. Nevertheless, God is ever faithful. The root meaning of faithfulness (Heb. ˒emunah) is "certainty" and "dependability."

Faithfulness describes who God is (1 Cor. 1:9). No matter what you do, God cannot be unfaithful because He cannot deny Himself (2 Tim. 2:13). He is steadfast and trustworthy. He keeps His promises (Heb. 10:23).
God's presence is assured, even if you are unaware of it (Matt. 28:20). His faithfulness is experienced in His protection (2 Thess. 3:3), mercy (Ps. 89:2), preservation (1 Thess. 5:23, 24), love (Rom. 8:35-39), and discipline (Ps. 89:32, 33); it is revealed in all His promises (Josh. 23:14).

"Great Is Thy Faithfulness"

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!
