“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:22-23
Today I am celebrating 20 years of marriage to my wonderful wife. Over those years I have constantly been amazed by her faithful love. When I have been successful she has been quick to celebrate. When I have failed she has been comforting and supportive. When I have been strong enough to carry the weight of the world she has admired me. And when I have been at my very weakest she has been strong and caring. Through every season of life, her faithful love never fails to amaze me. If you have ever experienced this kind of love from another human being, you know how beautiful it is.
However, as powerful as my wife’s love is, it is only a glimpse of the perfectly faithful love that our Heavenly Father has for us. Zephaniah 3:17 teaches us that God is always with us through all of life’s twists and turns. He is mighty and powerful to save in our weakest moments. He delights in all our successes and victories. He brings peace with His love in the midst of our darkest hour. And finally, He sings songs of joy over the ones He loves. God’s faithful love endures forever; through every season of life and on into eternity. Nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.
Father, we worship You, for Your faithful love endures forever!
