Scripture: Psalm 103:11-22
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear Him. But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear Him. (Psalm 103:11-17).
One person’s love for another is often subject to change. Many marriages fail because the love between marriage partners wanes as time goes by. The high divorce rate indicates that human love is inconstant.
God’s love for His children is different. It is unchanged and eternal. Although, God knows how sinful we are, He does not want us to perish. That is why He sent a Savior. All who believe in Jesus can be children of God and share in His covenant of love: “For God so loved the world that the gave is one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
However, God expects His children to obey Him and to live as He requires. Isaiah 54:10 says, “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
Memorize this prayer and recite it to yourself if you ever doubt God’s love for you.
Father, I find it incomprehensible that You, who are so great and wonderful, can love me in this way. I glorify You for Your constant and everlasting love. Help me to live as You require of me. Amen
