God’s Faithfulness

Great is Your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:23 [NKJV]

I have often wondered if we as believers would have more faith in the Lord and trust in His willingness to work on our behalf if we truly recognized the greatness of His faithfulness. A look at the literal meaning of the Hebrew word ’emunah used here gives us insight into the foundation upon which the Lord calls us to stand.
’Emunah literally means firmness, stability, faithfulness, fidelity, conscientiousness, steadiness, certainty; that which is permanent, enduring, steadfast. ’Emunah comes from a word meaning “to be firm, sure, established, and steady.” “Amen” is derived from this same word and means “It is firmly, truly so!” ’Emunah is often translated “faithfulness” or “truth,” as truth is considered something ultimately certain, stable, and unchangingly fixed.
No matter what may be shaking in your life today, being rooted in His great faithfulness, we shall stand secure in Him. Let us lift our voices today in praise for His faithful, gracious, sustaining hand that strengthens and guides us through every new day; and that includes today!
