Out of the ashes of pain, despair, disappointment, anger, sorrow, regret and heartache...there's one thing that will NEVER change:
ANYTHING can change in your life - your marriage, job, lose a friend or family member, your health, your living situation, your income, (
The steadfast love of the Lord
It's hard to explain God's love in human terms. Our finite mind is lacking and might say, "Well, if the Lord loves me, then everything in my life should be perfect!"
Unfortunately, not everything will go perfectly in our lives and we may not understand everything until we reach Heaven. But thankfully the power of God's love is greater than our experiences, and is ALWAYS there to help us through them.
In Ephesians 3:18 Paul prays:
May you experience the love of Christ,
We don't have to fully understand God's love to experience it, thank the Lord!
Even if you question the Lord, He will never fail or abandon you.
Even if you fall into the depths of sin, He forgives you.
Even if you commit murder, adultery, fornication, lie, cheat, curse, hate...God's love for you doesn't change.
That is pretty amazing, but it's what makes Him GOD! He IS Love - that's what and who He is!! (Check out 1 John 4:8 & 16.)
We see so many examples in scripture of the Lord's love never stopping. Look at The Message translation of Psalm 136:23-26,
Paul persecuted and consented to murdering Christians. David committed adultery and murder. Peter cursed and denied Jesus. Jonah disobeyed the Lord and ran from Him. Adam committed the sin that cursed the world. Abraham lied. Moses had anger issues. Solomon went after false gods.
But the Lord's love for them never changed and He continued to use them!
You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to You. Psalm 86:5
Paul sums it up like this in Romans 8:35, 37-39:
Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean He no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?
No matter what you are going through or what you have done, nothing can ever separate you from His Love.
His Love Remains ABOVE EVERYTHING!
