O my Strength, to you I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge,
the God who shows me unfailing love.
- Psalms 59:17 (NLT)
Human love can be shallow. We fall into it or we fall out of it. Often, our love is based on nothing more than what someone has done or not done for us. We are a "what have you done for me lately: kind of people. The Psalmist knew something that makes all the difference - God's love is not like ours. His love is a never failing, always present kind of love. His love is not because of who we are, but because of who He is.
His love never fails and never gives up.
Father, please help me to understand Your love better and to experience it in a deeper way. When I remember that You know everything about me, but love me anyway I am filled with wonder and amazement. Not only do I want to be growing deeper in Your love, I want to share that same love toward those who are around me. Thank you, that in the darkest moments of my sinfulness, that Your love is still there.
