Recently I have been blessed by listening to some of the poetry of Amy Carmichael. In particular, a couple lines from a poem “His Faithfulness” have caused me to reflect quite a bit upon the faithfulness of God.
O birds of God, come sing with me
My God is faithful, this I know
My Father, I have all in Thee
The line “My God is faithful, this I know” sticks with me. Many things have transpired in the year which is quickly coming to a close. So many unexpected things have arisen this year, but through it all the Lord God has been faithful! Consider the faithfulness of God displayed all around you. The changing seasons, the rising and setting of the sun each morning and evening proclaim the unchanging faithfulness of God. The growth you see in your life toward Christ-likeness shows the loving faithfulness of God. The fulfilment of promises in Scripture shine the steadfast faithfulness of God. Trials have come this year, trials will come next year. Through each happening in your life rest in the faithfulness of God. Rest in the fact that God knows, God cares, God controls, God is faithful.
**How have you seen the faithfulness of God demonstrated this year?
