Psalm 6:4, Jeremiah 31:3 NIV 2011

Turn, Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.

The Lord appeared to us in the past saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”

King David knew how much God loved him. He asked God to turn toward him. Psalm 25:16, “Turn to me and be gracious to me.” Psalm 31:2, “Turn your ear to me.” Psalm 86:18, “Turn to me and have mercy on me.” David knew God and was never afraid to ask for His help. Jeremiah was God’s prophet chosen to tell the people of Judah and Jerusalem their ungodly lives would lead to Babylonian exile. His words were tempered with hope-filled restoration. Making poor choices was their sin problem. He reminded them of God’s everlasting love, which would sustain them during their exile. God’s love is unfailing and everlasting.

Looking toward Valentine’s Day I know I can never out love the Lord. When I reflect on all the ways I see His love daily, I’m humbled that He continues to love a sinner like me. He loves us so much that He sent Jesus as John revealed in John 3:16. Another favorite, 1 John 4:9, “This is how God showed his love among us; He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” God’s love is unfailing and everlasting.

How does God demonstrate His love each day?

Loved unfailingly forever,

S
