Great is Thy Faithfulness
Today we focus on Psalm 89:1-4. We’ve read it for three days in a row, and its beautiful words of praise are beginning to be inscribed in our hearts. Through the Psalm, we learn that God’s love is steadfast and lasts forever; his faithfulness is unchanging; he makes covenants and never breaks his word.
Verses 3-4 remind us that God made a covenant with his servant King David and promised that one of his descendants would reign on God’s throne forever and ever. We know that this promised descendant is Jesus, who scripture tells us was “descended from the house and family of David” (Luke 2:4).
As we await the birth of this promised King, let us also remember the many times in our lives God has shown his love and faithfulness to us.

Faithful and loving God, thank you for keeping your covenant with us and sending Jesus to be our King who rules with compassion and justice. Help us to be ever mindful of all the ways you bless us. Amen.
