The Faithfulness of God

As I was pondering on what to put up tonight I just want to brag on God's Faithfulness.

They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. Lam 3:23

I was seeking the Lord and he led me to this verse in Lamentations. As I was thinking about this verse I was reminded of my lack of faithfulness in the weak times in my life. There have been times since I have been saved that I haven't been faithful. We should be faithful in our Studying the Scriptures, faithful in Our Supplication, faithful in Our Soulwarning, and faithful in our service. I think sometimes we forget that God expects us to be faithful in these areas. There verses before that talk about his mercies. God is so full of mercy toward us. I thank God that even when I am unfaithful in areas of my life he is always faithful to me. How has God been faithful to me.
I. He Provides For Me.
God has come through in more ways that just providing Finacially. I was thinking how times I have been discouraged and he has been that faithful friend that sticks closer than a brother. When I need him to come through in my prayer life He always provides an answer even if it ain't the one I want to hear.
He has provided comfort when love ones have died. He has been so faithful in provided for me.
II. He Protects Me.
I was thinking how many times has the Devil wanted to destroy us and Jesus stands up says that is one of mine. He protects me from the fiery darts of the devil. He protects when I run to his shelter and he is a strong tower. I thank God that he has been faithful through the onslaughts of the devil.
There are definitely other ways he has been faithful. He has been faithful with His promises to me. He promises us that he will never leave us nor forsake us. He promises that one day he will come back and take us home where we will live forever with him. My question to you this night is how has God been faithful to you, and also to encouraged you to always be faithful to him to the best of you ability. In closing I thank God that he never gives up on me for my lack of faithfulness and even when I am not that faithful he is always there with loving arms to accept me back. That is real faithfulness. Till next time God bless.

Isaiah 17:10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:

I read this verse last week or the week before and the phrase I have bolded stood out. Israel got in trouble because of what they forgot about the Lord.

He is the God of our salvation - we don't need to look anywhere for help.

He is the Rock of our strength - not only the source of our strength, but the Rock on which we stand, and the Rock which we are hidden in. He is our refuge, our defense, our fortified tower - as the word "rock" signifies here.

I just thought that verse fit your second point and wanted to share it. God bless.
