Hillsong’s Faithfulness

Now and always our God is faithful

Reference: “Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.” Psalm‬ ‭143:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Explore: I love it when God brings something into your life at just the right time.
I attend a Hillsong church and they have just released their latest album. While we have been singing these songs in church for a few months now, it’s the first time I’ve been able to listen to them at home.
The song Faithfulness holds important words I really need to hear at the moment:
From rising sun till Kingdom come
Your faithful love is unfailing
Though shadows turn and tempests stir
Still You oh God are unchanging
Through every hour
I will recall
All my hope is Jesus
Great is Your faithfulness
Great is Your faithfulness
I lift my eyes I won’t forget
How great Your faithfulness
When battle’s near I will not fear
Your promises are unshaken
My faith is sure of nothing more
Than Christ alone my portion
There’ll be a season
For joy and weeping
In everything our God is faithful
His arms are open
I will come running
Now and always our God is faithful
Application: God’s faithfulness brings me hope when I feel my life is out of control. The Psalmist also declares God’s faithfulness is essential for his well-being.
If you asked me if God was faithful I would immediately say “yes”. However, I surprise myself by how relieved I feel every time I’m reminded of this fact.
Knowing God is faithful brings me hope, assurance and strength to confront the future. God is not just faithful to me but to you as well.
Prayer: Lord, I know Your arms are open; I will come running. Now and always, You are faithful. Amen.
What does God’s faithfulness mean to you today?
