Unfailing Love of the Lord
O Lord, your unfailing love is as vast as the heavens.
Your unfailing love, O Lord , is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus Christ’s precious name !
The subject verse from the Book of Psalms present before us two divine qualities of the Almighty God. The two qualities are indeed divine for they are unlike those found in the mankind. For man is limited in his love and faithfulness. Man’s love and faithfulness are ever changing with times and people. The psalmist here expresses the greatness and the magnitude of God’s qualities in his limited words of knowledge. Since, nobody knows the extent of God’s grandeur or immensity, the never changing love of God is equaled to the vastness of the heavens.
God is love
The Holy Scriptures says that God is love. The statement is more than loving others. Very importantly it says that He himself is love. God’s love is pure and unconditional. Unconditional in the sense that we cannot do anything to make Him love us more or less. We love God, for He loved us first. And also we love others, for it had come from the God. As the following verse says, those who love others is a child of God and those who does not love does not know Him.
‘Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.’1 John 4:7-8
As the second part of the subject verse says that the reach of God’s faithfulness is way beyond the clouds. Certainly, we could see God’s faithfulness to His children throughout the Bible. How He had been with His people and with all the prophets, disciples and with all those who believed in Him. Moreover, there is nothing that can separate us from the Almighty God. His steadfast love for us is revealed in His Begotten Son.
‘And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.‘Romans 8:38-39 NLT
Therefore brethren, as the above verse says, nothing can separate us from the love of God. Let us also live in the way of our Lord Jesus showing the same kind of love to God first and to everyone. And give all the glory to the Holy Father in Jesus wondrous and mighty name. Amen.
