"His Faithfulness Is Great"

"They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." Lamentations 3:23
All morning the words of an old hymn having been repeating in my thoughts. The hymn is, "Great Is Thy Faithfulness". I have typed the words below for those of you who may not know the song or for those who need to be reminded of the words. The chorus and verses are a "sermon" in themselves and if I didn't say anything else this morning you would be encouraged by them. 
But I do want to remind you that God is faithful. What He says He will do, He will do. He is faithful even when we are not-- our lack of faithfulness will not change His faithfulness. He has always been faithful- you will never find one time when He has not been. He is faithful- past, present and future. His faithfulness is great and beyond measure. 
Today lean upon the faithfulness of God. Trust His faithful- know you can trust His faithfulness. Put your faith in Him and His ability, not yours. He will never fail you, and He will never let you down. 
“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.
“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!
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,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
Have a great day. The Lord is faithful, and great is His faithulness.
