“The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 NLT

A faithful person can be relied on and trusted in every situation. The closer the relationship, the more faithfulness is valued. While the faithfulness of a friend or business partner is greatly appreciated, and causes deep disappointment and pain when betrayed, it cannot be compared to a marriage relationship - where a man and a women have promised - “to love and to cherish from this day forward, until death do us part”. The betrayal of such a relationship must be absolutely devastating!
Our LORD will never betray us and cause us such pain. His unconditional love never ends!! Even before we believed in Him, and were hostile toward Him, He loved us. And now as believers, we have to admit that we are not always entirely reliable and trustworthy. Yet He continues to love us. Paul writes, “If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.” When we admit our shortcomings and repent, the Holy Spirit makes us aware that His faithful love has been there all the time!
In addition to our LORD’S faithful and unending love, “His mercies never cease.” If we stop to think, His mercies are all around us - too numerous to count. Besides the mercies we are aware of, there must be countless more to which we are totally oblivious. All through life He has been graciously and faithfully pouring mercies into our lives because the faithful love of the Lord never ends!
Our LORD’S mercies begin afresh each morning. Even when we ignore Him or are asleep His mercies keep flowing into our lives. He never runs out - every morning there is a new supply, perfectly designed to meet the needs of that day! Every morning when the alarm goes off and we put our feet on the floor – our LORD is ready with fresh mercies! Great is His 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.”
