God’s Tender LOVE

Do you ever wonder about God’s love, if His love for you will endure, if it will outlast your sins, or if your sins will exhaust it? Have you ever wondered about His faithfulness to you, if it will always be there . . . if it will always keep you no matter what?

It is written in the Psalms 103:17: “The lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who reverence Him.”

The word translated as lovingkindness is the Hebrew word khesed. Khesed speaks not only of God’s merciful, tender love, but of His faithful love, the love of God that doesn’t let go. But what it goes on to say about that love is amazing: The faithful love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who reverence Him. Do you realize what it’s saying? His tender and faithful love for you is from everlasting. In other words, He doesn’t only love you now. He loved you before you were.

How you may ask? He’s God. He knew you before you existed? Not just a year or ten years before, He has always known you. For ages before you existed, He has known you. And if He loves you now, it could not have been any different then. God has loved you, tenderly, mercifully, and faithfully . . . from everlasting. How long has He loved you? For an eternity! He’s loved you from forever. His love for you has already lasted an eternity! It has already traIveled an eternity to reach you.

Will God’s love for you ever cease or give up? The answer is no. God’s love for you has already spanned the length of eternity. It has already lasted forever. For the love of God is, to you who reverence Him, from everlasting to everlasting, from forever to forever.

TODAY: Ponder the love that God has for you that has already endured for an eternity, and will not cease or ever fail you.
