The Unfailing Love of God

Unfailing. What an adjective! The very definition of unfailing uses words like constant, inexhaustible, infallible, and sure. Those words don’t always describe me or the way I love those around me. My love could probably often be described as exhaustible, fickle, and very conditional. That is human nature. Even our best days, our love pales in comparison with the love of God. That’s the way it should be. We were never meant to love in our own strength. We were always meant to love others with the overflow of His love. In order to love as He loves, we first need to realize how much He really does love us.

The whole of Psalm 63 follows King David into the wilderness while he was on the run from his enemies. I would assume that would be the time I would doubt God’s love the most. But David didn’t. This was one of the times he trusted God’s love for him the most. His circumstances were hard and fearful, but he knew God was trustworthy. He knew God was faithful. He put every ounce of his being into giving God glory and praise despite the fact that his circumstances hadn’t changed.

Somehow David kept a thankful heart.
