“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.”
We live in a world where failure abounds…in governments and in businesses…in schools and in churches, in friends, in family….and in ourselves.
And instantaneous worldwide communication makes these failures all the more evident. So the idea of unfailing Love is kind of radical…because there is no adequate model for it in this world.
Even the most devoted parent, friend, or lover will let us down sometimes. But Christ is the eternal Lover who never fails us because He is a perfect God with empathy for us.
He understand us because He became man and knows all that we go through.
The fact that He gets us, and has unending and unfailing compassion for us, must give us hope in Him. Hope that will strengthen us and encourage us no matter how we fail or how many times we fail.
I pray that when we mess up, we will get back up knowing that the sovereign Lord does not delight in seeing us down but rather is pleased when we try again trusting in His unfailing Love for you…Amen!
