Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever! Ps. 107:1 (ESV)
Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;
let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.
Ps. 107:43 (ESV)
The psalmist recognizes the goodness of the Lord and offers praise when reflecting on God’s steadfast love. We can assume that steadfast love lacks passion, but God’s love is both consistent and passionate as He continues to seek out a relationship with us. The thought of this kind of love is inspiring to me.
I know two couples who are in their nineties and have logged over 60 years of marriage. Now that is an example of steadfast, everlasting love. Remember, God’s love for us doesn’t change. It always remains the same, through our ups and downs, failures, and sin. Take some time today to reflect and rejoice in God’s unfailing love for you. You will find yourself, like the psalmist, praising Him for all the goodness He has done.
