He Is Faithful
"They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:23
God has given Fredericksburg Wesleyan Church a vision for the future. As we have explored forty days of prayer and fasting in pursuit of this dream, we have found Him to be a faithful promise keeper. Today’s devotional is dedicated to praising the Lord for this aspect of His character.
Prayer Focus: Praise Him using this wonderful old hymn:
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
(Text by Thomas O. Chisholm. Music by William M. Runyan)
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 spring-time 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!
