What a great thanksgiving, waking up realizing, “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord God-1is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. Lamentations 3:22-25 (ESV)

Great is God’s faithfulness, which is new every morning. Meaning it is never ending, and it has nothing to do with anyone else in our life, or how much they have done for us. But all our hope, all our grace and mercy, and most important our Salvation, rest on our Savior and His abundant faithfulness toward each of us.

And if you are a Child of God that makes it very personal and it allows each of us to be “confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in [each of us] will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Phil 1:6 (KJV)

“In April 1988 the evening news reported on a photographer who was a skydiver. He had jumped from a plane along with numerous other skydivers and filmed the group as they fell and fallingopened their parachutes. On the film shown on the telecast, as the final skydiver opened his chute, the picture went berserk.

The announcer reported that the cameraman had fallen to his death, having jumped out of the plane without his parachute. It wasn’t until he reached for the absent ripcord that he realized he was free-falling without a parachute.

Until that point, the jump probably seemed exciting and fun. But tragically, he had acted with thoughtless haste and deadly foolishness. Nothing could save him, for his faith was in a parachute that he had never buckled on.”

Oh great is God’s faithfulness as we look back over our lives so much of it we were just free-falling, living with thoughtless haste and deadly foolishness as we “followed the cosmic powers over the darkness of this world, the spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places.”

My friends, that is why we must give our Savior all the praise, glory and honor on this thanksgiving day 2015 and everyday of our life. And for everyone who does not recognize the faithfulness of our Savior and continues to free-fall through life, Christ is Calling.

Christ is asking His Children for a unrestricted dependence on Him as we allow His Spirit to transform us into a candidate for God’s images33kingdom. Remember it’s personal this is our Salvation and His faithfulness towards you and I as we seek God’s presence on our own accord.

In addition, His faithfulness reaches us no matter where we are or what we are doing for “who is a God like thee, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in [his faithfulness and] steadfast love” Micah 7:18 (ESV)

While at the same time His character is cultivated through us daily, an Unimaginable faithfulness towards His Children that will allow us to become truly humble, devoted and God fearing workers in finishing up God’s commission here on earth as we begin to show our full “gratitude and our own faithfulness for what Christ has done for us.


Every excuse we may give as the reason we cannot serve Christ, was challenged and answered at Calvary.
