“Great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23b). This is the text that led Thomas Obadiah Chisholm to write the poem that became a beloved hymn sung on every continent. Here’s a simple way to bring its truth into focus …
Great is our fickleness … Great is thy faithfulness.
We may grow weary … but our God cannot.
We may give up … but our God cannot.
We may fluctuate … but our God cannot.
We may vacillate … but our God cannot.
We may disappoint ourselves … but our God cannot disappoint anyone.
We may fail a thousand times … but our God cannot fail, not even once.
God’s faithfulness is so great that we may rest assured that when we come to the final bend in the road, he will be there as we make the journey from earth to heaven.
