“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23.
The above Scripture is one I’ve always considered as one of my top favorites. From birth to this day, God’s faithfulness has been interwoven into my life circumstances–the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’ve failed Him many times, but He has never failed me and has been the constant source of strength and direction that I’ve always needed. I’m thankful for His unconditional love and care throughout every moment of my life. He provides a shelter in every storm and a rainbow to follow each one.
Friends, there’s no safer place to be than sheltered in God’s love and protection. You see, His love for us is not based on conditions—how good we are or how much we try to do to prove that we’re worthy of His goodness. Quite the contrary, His love for us is everlasting. In Psalm 103:12, the Bible tells us that He forgives us, casts our sins as far as the East is from the West. Even though we might hash our past mistakes and sins, that same verse tells us that after he casts the sins far away, He remembers them no more! I find that amazing that He loves us that much.
Why not trust Him more today than you did yesterday and ask Him to help you take on a joy-filled life. You will never be sorry for having done so. He is our peace, our every satisfaction, and He is the only One whose steadfast love will always be with us.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, You are the One we seek today. It is Your steadfast love that binds us to You like glue. Please forgive us when we fail You and help us to forgive ourselves for any of our wrongs that You have already righted. Fill us with more of Your love so that we might shine the light of Jesus to a lost and dying world. We thank You for being beside us every step of the way. This I pray in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, and Lord. Amen.
