Faithful Is Our God

Jeremiah is known as the weeping prophet who warned Judah of the coming captivity due to their unfaithfulness to God. He was rejected by his king, the priests, prophets, and his own people. He was placed in a miry pit and carried to Egypt. Yet here is a man that declared, “Great is thy faithfulness.”

How could he declare God’s faithfulness when everything around him screamed the opposite?

Because Jeremiah’s eyes did not rest upon his surroundings.

It takes faith to look beyond the veil of circumstance, whether it is heartache or loss, to say, “Great is thy faithfulness.”

How is your faith this September morn? What are you thankful for in your current circumstances?

Me? I’m thankful for electricity this morn. I’m glad I have running water. I’m grateful that even though we have minor damages, most can be fixed. We are safe. Irma is gone. And I’m praying for all those who are still dealing with the aftermath of this storm, Harvey, and the fires.

I pray because, like Jeremiah, I believe God is faithful. And while we face the trials and tests in this life, He promises He’ll see us through until the end. And that, dear reader, is what Jeremiah understood.

Have faith, dear friend. Peek over the veil and see. In the end, all will be well because of His faithfulness!

  3. What a great post! I am so glad I read this today. My heart really needed this reminder today. I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed lately, but your post serves as a great reminder to chill out and give it to God. Thank you!

  4. I loved, loved, loved this simple, yet beautiful devotional this a.m. Just what I needed. I try to keep current with world (especially U.S.) events, but sometimes it all gets overwhelming and that includes one’s life happenings. So exhilarating to know God’s faithfulness is still great! Thank you!

    • Oh, Carole! I completely understand. I have to turn everything off and just pray sometimes! It is so easy to become overwhelmed when watching the news. So much is happening! But I’m so glad I serve a God that is never overwhelmed! Have a blessed day!
