God’s unfailing love

Another of God’s wonderful promises is His unfailing love for us. 

Many of us can’t even grasp the magnitude of God’s love. It is life’s greatest gift. The reason God knows how to love us so well is because He is love. 

He knows exactly what we need (not want!) and listens to our needs. We can always hold on to this promise. 

Psalm 89:2 is an incredible reminder of the kind of love God has for us: 

“Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.” 

God’s love for us is not only unfailing, but also forever. That will never change. 

Our comfort through these uncertain and worrying times is God’s unfailing and faithful love. He loves us and cares for us enough to faithfully bring us through this life into his kingdom, as he did for his Son through the resurrection. There, all our desires will be met and we will live the best of lives! 

Paul also reminds us in Romans 8: 38-39: 

“I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (NLT). 

The words ‘unfailing love’ are used many times in the Bible, particularly in the Psalms. I think God wants us to ‘get it’! 

“How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings” (Psalm 36:7, NLT). 

God bless
