For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you.Isaiah 54:10
Godly Love in a Broken World
God’s love is as vast as the ocean and as high as the mountains. His Word says in 1 John 4:19 that we only know how to love because He first loved us. In the beginning of time He created the world so that man could walk with Him and delight in Him. Then, He continued to show man His unconditional love after man sinned in the Garden of Eden. He poured out His grace on mankind that even though sin prevented man from remaining in the Garden, He took care of man for generations. He rescued man from Egypt where they lived as slaves. He gathered the remnant of people from the countries that overtook Israel because of their sins and denial of God. He gave them their land once again. He sent His Son to earth in the form of a baby to walk the earth with man. The greatest form of godly love, though, was when He sacrificed His Son on the cross for the sins of mankind. That is godly love.
We can love with that kind of love. We can have a faithful love that never leaves, never forsakes, never disappoints. We can only love like God loves if we continue to live in His love every single day.
A Prayer to Remember
You are so faithful. Your love never fails. You never break your promises. You have poured out your mercy on my life. May I live like you lived and love like you love. Amen.
