Old Faithful or Ancient Faithful?


Old Faithful is a cone geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Old Faithful was named in 1870 by members of the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition. Legend has it that it was the first geyser in Yellowstone Park to be given a name. Old Faithful is also called the most “predictable geographical feature” on earth due to the fact that it erupts every 91 minutes.

I have stood as close as you are allowed to stand in front of this majestic creation of God as it has erupted. It is awesome, it is majestic, and it is legendary. Its beauty and magnificence is almost beyond description.

However, I know someone who is even more majestic, more awesome, and immensely more magnificent. What is more, He knows me!

“Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. ‘The LORD is my portion, says my soul, therefore I hope in Him.’ The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good tha one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:22-26, NKJV)
