God’s Love is Unconditional and Unfailing

God love you with a steadfast and enduring love that can be difficult to understand but is pure joy to rely on.

“O my strength to you I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love”

- Psalm 59:17 NLT

But what does God mean by unfailing love?  As humans, we understand through our faith that God is our comfort and our strength, but do we really know in our deepest heart that he loves us unconditionally, without fail and without change?  It can be difficult to fathom this whole-hearted, unreserved love. After all, even those closest to us may sometimes let us down or grow away from us.

Perhaps the only love on earth that is close to God’s unconditional love is the love a parent have for their children.  We will protect them to the very end of our days, comfort them when they are hurting and defend them even when they have disappointed or exasperated us. God’s love for us is the same -  we do not have to perform or live up to certain expectations to receive his love.  In our personal lives, we may always strive to be good enough , interesting enough or attractive enough – but with God, the love is there from the beginning and is steadfast and unfailing even when we are at our worst.

God’s Love is Always Present

God says, “When you call Me, I will answer.” That’s a pretty strong affirmation. He doesn’t say, “Call Me and I’ll get back to you,” or “call Me and if I’m not angry with you I’ll answer.”  There are no limitations, no strings attached, just a simple and pure promise.  This is what unconditional love is about – it is all about God being there for you, day and night, year after year, during the highs and the lows of your life.  Will you always get the answer you want?  Probably not, but then God, like a good parent, knows what is best for you. His answers are the right ones and He will always provide them out of love for you.

God knows you better than anyone else.  Does that sound frightening to you?  It shouldn’t. Yes, God knows about all of the small sacrifices you’ve made as well as the big mistakes – and His love changes not one bit because of them ! If you can accept God’s love and the good He has prepared for you in the same manner it was given – unconditionally and without reservation – you will find peace in knowing that unconditional love.

The Comfort of Unconditional Love

If you’ve ever had a friend or loved one that you felt you could trust completely, you’ve had a faint taste of what it like to be able to rely on someone without worry or fear. But even the strongest relationships can end , loved ones can die, circumstances can destroy our faith in others.  Not so with God and His unconditional love because He is never-ending and never changing. Nothing in this world that you can do or say will alter His love for you.  He will never leave you or forsake you. You can always, always find comfort and security through your relationship with God because it is, like Him, eternal.

“Even though I walk through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid for you are close beside me.  Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me”

-Psalm 23:4 NLT

Isn’t it a wonderful feeling to know that, just like the writer of the Psalm, God’s presence and love are still here today, still an eternal presence in your life?

No matter what you do, no matter how you look, know matter how many mistakes you’ve made; you can never let God down because He love you without conditions, without measure and with no reservations. God is guiding you through every experience of your life – not because you have earned it, but because God loves you no matter what.  When the dark clouds settle and all others abandon you, the light of God will shine bright and show you the way. His guiding light us unconditional love.

God’s Grace is All You Need

People talk a lot of about the Grace of God and being touched by God’s Grace, but it’s one of the most difficult concepts for most of us to understand.  After all, how can we grasp the concept of being the recipients of such an amazing and wonderful gift as the Grace that is God’s forgiveness of our sins when we are so undeserving?  And what does that Grace do to change the reality of our daily lives anyway?  The answers are amazing and truly reflect just how much God loves us and the great good He desires for us.

God’s Grace was given to us even before we were born, at the very beginning of time, so we know that it isn’t based on whether we’ve earned it or if we’ve done something to earn it:

“This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.”

- 2 Timothy 1:9

It’s so wonderful that God has always loved us and always will, and freely gave us this gracious, bountiful gift.  It’s an unearned blessing, a gift from our Lord and Savior that we received before we even looked for it.  God’s will for you is absolute good.  I know this is true for myself, and I also know it is true for every person on Earth.  God’s love is unconditional a Grace available to everyone, at all times and in all circumstances.  No matter who we are or what we’ve done!

That’s right – you’ve already “earned” God’s Grace simply by being a precious, individual creation of God.  Simply by existing as His creation, you are deserving of His Grace !  Nothing you do or do not do can remove that Grace from your life.  It is present here, now and always. Through God’s Grace, you are accepted and loved in every moment. Through God’s Grace you continually blessed – and our knowledge of this constant blessing is what can change the reality of our daily lives.  What could possibly bring us more joy and peace than knowing that nothing can separate us from God’s Grace?  No matter how low we fall or how high we climb, His Grace will surround us.

“Let us therefore approach the throne of Grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

- Hebrews 4:16

When we need God’s Grace and loving kindness, we can rest assured that it will be there for us.  We will be enfolded in it and can rely on it to carry us through no matter how difficult our trials, because that Grace is sufficient for every need.  When we have God’s Grace, we don’t need the forgiveness of others or the understanding of men.

We have all that we need to carry us through the problems in our lives, and the realization that our God has showered us with His Grace all our lives and He will never withhold it should embolden us – it is our guarantee that we can do anything !  With the Grace of God shielding us, what amazing things we can do with our own lives and in the lives of others, what riches we can share !  That Grace gives meaning and glory to our lives as members of the body of Christ’s church on earth – we should share that Grace with others. It is all that we will ever need to find peace in our lives, and by sharing it with those around us, that joy and peace will be magnified to the Glory of God.

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

- 1 Corinthians 1:3

With an attitude of gratitude , we live our daily lives in the very atmosphere of God’s Grace. God’s will for us is absolute good. God’s love is unending, a grace that is for all , at all times and in all circumstances.
