22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
I am sitting here in awe of God’s faithfulness. Having seen God work and come through on three major breakthroughs, one for myself and two others for other people. All I can say is WOW. All three situations could have ended badly. To say I was never discouraged, to say I never cried, to say I was not angry would be a lie because I did go through discouragement, hurt and anger. I just could not understand why things were the way they were after having worked so hard for something. When was it going to be my turn to celebrate? When was it going to be my turn to have good news? Then one afternoon I received a call from a friend telling me of a major breakthrough I had been praying for. I was so moved, I was speechless. I literally had no words in that moment, I was so overwhelmed by God’s faithfulness. A week later I received a call to announce a personal breakthrough for me. Again I was so overwhelmed with God’s faithfulness. A week after that second breakthrough, a friend tells me of her breakthrough and how God came through for her in a big way. All I could say was MWARI MAKATENDEKEKA (God You are faithful).
God is faithful! I know that is so easy to say when you have just received a major breakthrough but HE IS. No matter what life may throw our way GOD IS FAITHFUL. The problem is that we tend to associate God’s faithfulness with the areas in our lives that need breakthrough and overlook all the other areas overflowing with God’s faithfulness. God is faithful is every aspect of our lives not just in the obvious areas that need a breakthrough. The very fact that I am sitting here writing this, roof over my head, food in my belly, clothes on my back is testimony of His faithfulness. The Bible says that God’s mercy is new every morning meaning each day brings with it a new wave of God’s faithfulness in our lives. I feel so challenged even as I write this.
I challenge you this week to praise and thank God for His faithfulness in every area of your life especially in those areas that need a breakthrough.
