1 Chronicles 16:34
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.”
The love of God is an infinite thing. Infinity - endless time. Eternity - time without end. Not just time without end, but time without end in the presence of Almighty God.
Love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 is the only concise definition of love, listing all the attributes love is to have. Without an example, how would we ever know what love was? The bible tells us that God loved us before we even knew Him. How is that possible? It is not just like parents who love an unborn baby in the mother’s womb before he or she is ever born. Both parents created a living, breathing child through an act of love. God created man through an act of love as well; that is how He could love us before we ever knew Him.
For this reason we should praise God. Praise him for who He is. Praise him for the life you have. Praise him for the love he has for you in spite of yourself. Thank him for his patience with you. Ask him to guide and direct you in the way you should go. Seek to be more like Christ. God knows what he’s doing. He loves us with an enduring, steadfast, unconditional love that will never fail and never end. Rejoice in the fact that even though he knows all your faults and failings, he chooses to love you because you are His child.
Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
