The Strength of His Love

Because God’s faithful love toward us is strong, the Lord’s faithfulness lasts forever! Praise the Lord! – (Psalm 117:2, CEB)

For great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord. – (Psalm 117:2, NIV)

For He loves us very dearly, and His truth endures. Praise the Lord. – (Psalm 117:2, TLB)

 

Despite what we see or what we may feel, the Lord’s love for us lasts forever. His love is not dependent on what we do, but rather He loves because we are His. God is faithful forever and worthy of all of our praise. So often on the days that we choose to trust and praise, regardless of what we see, breakthrough comes and we become aware of the hand of God that has been moving all along. May we rise up and trust in His great love for us, as His faithfulness will remain forever.

 

For great is His love, Strong Heart

It’s faithful and true;

Forever endures,

For me and for you.

All that He’s promised,

Shall always remain;

We can lay hold of,

Truth His word proclaims.

For God’s faithfulness,

And His lasting love;

May we ever praise,

The Lord God above.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your faithful love toward us is strong and eternal. Thank You that Your faithfulness knows no end. Forgive us for failing to trust Your goodness when we cannot see evidence of You working in our circumstances. Teach us to trust You more, so that we will trust Your faithfulness, even when we cannot see how You are moving on our behalf. Show us how to love others in a way that lifts others up and gives strength and hope where it is lacking. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we give You all of our praise because You are faithful forever and Your truth never ends. Amen.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; …write them on the tablet of your heart. – Proverbs 3:3

Great Unfailing Love

For great is His love toward us, and faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord. – (Psalm 117:2, NIV)

For His unfailing love is great, and it is intended for us, and His faithfulness to His promises knows no end. Praise the Eternal! – (Psalm 117:2, VOICE)

 

The Lord’s love and faithfulness to us if evident everywhere if we simply slow down to look and listen. Yesterday was a huge a-ha sort of day, as the Lord so clearly showed me how He never leaves us nor forsakes us, as He surrounded me and encouraged me all day, with treasured friends to make what could have been a trying day, reasonable. From the moment I woke to just before I went to sleep, I had countless reminders of His love and faithfulness to me both yesterday, and throughout the past many months of what I have been walking through. He has gone before me and stayed with me, and provided people to be tangible extensions of His hands and heart. His love endures forever, and a lifetime is not nearly long enough to praise Him for all that He has done! May we each remember how great His love is for us all, and that the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Let every heart give Him thanks and praise.

 

How great His love is,The Reason for Reverence

Poured out upon us;

Faithful forever,

Our Savior, Jesus.

Always, He’s for us,

His love that endures;

True to His promise,

Our hope that’s secure.

All praise to the Lord,

From whom blessings flow;

Faithful forever,

May all our thanks show.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your love for us is far greater than we can even begin to grasp. Thank You that You are faithful forever. Thank You that our praise to You is received as an offering of thanks. Forgive us for not recognizing the depth of Your love and how eternal is Your faithfulness. Teach us to trust in Your promises. Show us how to love those around us so that they might see Your faithfulness and love through our words and deeds. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we praise You through all that we say and do, by honoring You. Amen.
