He Is Faithful!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Cecil Thompson

Psalm 89:5-7

"The heavens praise Your wonders, O LORD, Your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones. For who in the skies above can compare with the LORD? Who is like the LORD among the heavenly beings? In the Council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; He is more awesome than all who surround Him."

From moment to moment, new experiences and opportunities arise which are ordered by the Lord. I can only stand amazed in His presence. More and more I am aware of the need of prayer in every action I take. I remember an old hymn of the church, "Great Is Thy Faithfulness", that expresses just how much God loves us and provides for us.

In all of our busy activities and the heavy demands of life, we need to realize it is His faithfulness to us that counts. We tend to become preoccupied with our own actions and activities to such a degree that we focus on our faithfulness. The writer of this beloved hymn lets us know that it is God’s faithfulness that counts. What a comfort that is to us.

"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.

“Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness to
Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

“Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow-
blessings all mine with ten thousand beside!


Great is thy faithfulness, Great is Thy faithfulness,
morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy grace has provided—
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!"

Think about how the Lord has directed your steps. He is always present in a mighty way to protect and comfort us. Sometimes the reason we are not more aware of His faithfulness is that we are too busy whining about our discomfort.

Instead of weeping and moaning, we need to be people of praise in the midst of the tests and trials of life. God’s Word is full of those who suffered loneliness, pain and even death with a shout of victory. What do you think they would say to us if they saw the way we behave? It is time to grow up and live differently than those who are unsaved.

We have had so many answers to our prayers that we can never stop praising Him. It makes us aware of His faithfulness to us when we turn all of our concerns and cares over to Him, and then leave them in His care.

My personal testimony is one of victory. The Lord just continues to shower His blessings upon my life and ministry. It is all to the praise of His glory! For those of you receiving these Daily-E-Votionals, I pray fervently for you and ask God to take my words and use them to touch areas in your life that He knows all about.

Blessings dear hearts. Walk with God today. Trust Him completely and become a real blessing.
