But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love. – Psalm 33:18 (NLT)
Unfailing love. Two of the most beautiful words that describe how our heavenly Father loves us. I love the Psalms and read them daily, and the words unfailing love are repeated often. I’ve begun to highlight the words every time I see them as a reminder of how much my Father loves me.
Just what does unfailing mean anyway? The dictionary tells us that this adjective means inexhaustible, endless and completely dependable. Yep, that sums up the love that Yahweh has for His children. How blessed we are to have such a loving Father! Some other verses on unfailing love:
The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands. – Psalm 25:10 (NLT)
I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. – Psalm 31:7 (NLT)
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23: 6 (NLT)
Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. – Psalm 36:5 (NLT)
This one is particularly beautiful:
How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings. – Psalm 37:7 (NLT)
When was the last time that you thanked El Elyon (Most High God) for his unfailing love? Won’t you join me in praising Him and thanking Him for loving us?
Today I come before You to give thanks for Your unfailing love. Your Word tells me over and over again how much You love Your children and I am humbled to know that the Creator of the Universe loves me with a love that is endless. My heart and my mind can’t begin to take it in! Praise You, Father, for Your love and goodness and for loving me so very much! May I extend Your love to others that I meet that they may see You through me.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
