His Love Stands Firm

Psalm 89:2: “I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.”

Most of us have heard the expression, “Puppy love.” We refer to simple infatuation as a crush or puppy love. That love is the romantic feelings that young people in their childhood or adolescence feel.

God’s love for us is not puppy love or a crush. It is not a temporary love, but one that has a firm foundation and is eternal. As Psalm 89:2 says, “[his] love stands firm forever.”

Although God knows us with all our strengths and weaknesses, his love continues to stand firm forever. His love for us is not centered on fantasies and daydreams but is grounded in reality. He knows us as no one else can or ever will.

We may be unfaithful to God, but he is faithful to us. We may let go of his hand or turn our backs on him, but he never lets go of us or turns his back on us. He waits for us and woos us back to himself.

We can’t work to earn God’s love. His faithfulness was established in heaven, and is not dependent on our good works. Unlike our love, God’s love is pure, holy, perfect, eternal, and faithful.

Dear God, help me understand your love and faithfulness. Amen.

Application:  When this week will you accept God’s love and faithfulness and thank him for both?
