The bible mentions God’s unfailing love in many scriptures. Most of the scriptures come from the book of Psalm written by David. He desperately cried out to God to rescue him in his time of trouble. In those scriptures he spoke of God’s unfailing love like he was encouraging himself. Because of his circumstances, I think he was feeling like God has turned his back on him and forsaken him. (Read Psalm chapter 6)
We can’t go by how we feel; our feelings will lie to us! I know I have to say things to myself sometimes for encouragement when I don’t feel it. Just because we feel like God doesn’t love us doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love us…we just feel that way. The truth still remains the same…God loves us! We have to go by what we know is true! David knew that and he constantly reminded himself of this truth…that God’s love is unfailing.
Trust that God loves you! That is what his word says. Unfailing love…. Let that sink in a bit.
To fail is to….
o Fade or die away
o Stop or fall short
o Become absent or inadequate
We can’t comprehend the love that God has for us. NEVER will his love fade, die away, stop or fall short, become absent or inadequate. Unfailing is the OPPOSITE of fail.
His Unfailing love will….
o NOT weaken
o NOT fade or die away
o NOT stop or fall short
o NOT become absent or inadequate
Psalm 21:7 “For the king trusts in the Lord; through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken.”
What a comfort! To know that God’s love for me will NEVER change and will ALWAYS stay the same and CAN’T be shaken.
