Psalm 103:17-18 “… from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children — with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.”
Simply put, the Psalmist is saying that God’s love for His own has no end and it directed towards those who respect and revere Him with awe. Those who call themselves Christians must keep His covenant and obey His word. It is all laid out for us; all we need to do is embrace it and live it with His help. We have to be careful with the word fear here. We aren’t to be afraid of God, but rather in awe of His might and power. Those outside the family of God should be very afraid, but those who strive to please God and live according to His precepts have absolutely nothing whatsoever to fear.
pre•cept n. 1. A rule or principle prescribing a particular course of action or conduct.
“… a course of action or conduct”; God’s Word has it all spelled out. Our righteousness is secured through the actions of Christ on the cross at Calvary. The love of God is an amazing thing, if it is fair to even call it a thing. The love of God induces an emotion from us, or at least it should, that gives birth to reassurance and hope. Regardless of our situation or circumstance, God’s love remains the same; the one true constant in a world of inconsistency. Serve God with your whole heart. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Leave the details to the Lord. He knows us better than we know ourselves and knows every need that we have. He is our Heavenly Father. He loves us, now and forever. If you find that no one in this life loves you and I’m talking tangible love and not just lip service, know that the Creator of your beating heart loves you more than you could ever comprehend.
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
