Written by Thomas Chrisholm, Great is Thy Faithfulness is the favorite hymn of many in The Church, and one of the most beloved hymns in Christian music history. As a popular hymn, worship leaders have sung this song around the world as a praise and worship favorite to remind believers of the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Let me share with you how this hymn can relate to your life.
Oh, how wonderful the Lord is. Oh, How Faithful the Lord is. I can remember there was a time when I was about to be evicted from my apartment complex.
It was a very distressing time. I didn't know where to turn or who to talk to about it. The only thing that I could do was trust God and believe Him to provide and make a way for me.
So there I was in my apartment praying to God for help. I prayed and prayed. Eventually, I fell asleep.
The next day was eviction; at least it was supposed to be. The Lord sent a huge snowstorm that canceled evictions!
So as you read and sing this song, it is my prayer that you meditate on all the times that God has brought you out of some difficulty, or provided for you.
For we know:
Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all (Psalm 34:19)
