Tu Fidelidad es Grande (Your Faithfulness is Great)


Monday was the last day of a 21 day commitment I made to seek out the Lord, reflect on His character, and really strive to remember just how much He loves me. It was quite the eventful 21 days, but God was ever faithful and gracious and showered me with his love….

Since I arrived in Peru on February 10, I have struggled with being lonely and away from my family. I have always known that Christ supplies our every need and that we should be satisfied/content with Him. But I realized one evening that I had reached a point of not only NOT being content solely with Christ, but really not wanting to be satisfied nor content with Christ. I WANTED TO BE HOME. I wanted to sit with my mom for hours and talk. I wanted to be bear hugged by my dad. I wanted to attend my sister’s wedding. I wanted to play with my nieces and nephews. I wanted to be there when my 3 new nieces and nephews were born thus far this year (one more coming in December I’m going to miss also). I obviously couldn’t just hop on a plane back for those events, but how do you not pine for those things and solely be content with Christ??

As I acknowledged these feelings and desires and sought out the Lord, He led me to do a 21 day Daniel fast to seek Him and He also led me to Philippians 4. Many of us have Philippians 4:13 memorized, but it is what Paul says in the verses leading up to that verse that became my personal encouragement:

"Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me."

- Philippians 4:11-13

The Lord has brought this passage up in a variety of situations during the past 21 days by different people who had no idea what I was going through. I believe it doesn’t only apply to material things, but our spirit’s status as well. I have been facing being “brought low”, “hunger” and “need” in my soul. But thanks to being reminded of how Christ loves us from the book “Love Walked Among Us” by Paul Miller, Philippians 4, and the Lord speaking through others, I am much more accepting and aware of His love for me as the best love and companionship possible. Still have a lifetime of learning to really live that out, but it’s a start with where the Lord has me here in Peru.

Tonight(Tuesday), I was invited to join the Worship team in their devotions and prayer time. The leader of the Worship team wasn’t aware of what all I have been going through personally. I went and the entire objective of the devotion time was focusing on God’s faithfulness to us and how He is our Father, Mother, Friend, etc. if we don’t have ours or they are far away. During a time of personal prayer, the Worship leader began singing the song “Tu Fidelidad es Grande” (Your Faithfulness is Great). It is a simple song and we repeat the same 4 lines over and over, but it is beautiful and an amazing reminder of Christ’s faithfulness and love. I have attached a youtube video of the song and the verses are below. I hope you are as blessed by it as I am.

Tu Fidelidad es Grande (Your Faithfulness is Great)

Tu Fidelidad incomparable es (Your Faithfulness is incomparable)

Nadie como tu Bendito Dios (There is no like you Blessed God)

Grande es tu Fidelidad (Great is Your Faithfulness)
