GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS
What a joy and privilege to know of the Lord’s great love! Our hearts experience deep gratitude for His tremendous compassions that are given to us, especially in the good times.
Yet, when we have fitful, sleepless nights, we have a tendency to forget they are ours. His love, His compassion, and His faithfulness become harder to detect and harder still to appreciate. Yet it is in the sorrows of life that His love-light shines brightly in and through us. It is then that He reminds us that the pain and the difficult emotions are buoyed by His divine love. He assures us that what we are experiencing is given in the smallest amount of pressure possible, for He Himself is carrying the heaviest load (Matthew 11:28-30). Just as an older ox is joined with a younger one in the yoke while being trained, so Christ is joined with us to carry us and our entire load. In the process, Jesus promises to make all things new in Him. Through it we learn to trust that His faithfulness is reliable and His strength secure.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, You are faithful to all Your promises and loving toward all You have made. May my trust be assured of Your faithfulness through the study of Your Word. Amen.
