“But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love
is with those who fear him, and his righteousness
with their children’s children”
Psalm 103: 17
We often think of God as being eternal, and we know that God is love. It’s not only that He gives us love, or that he helps us to love others (and he does both), but His very essence is love. But do we think of God this way, and His love being eternal?
It’s difficult for us to fully comprehend God’s love. Do you know why? Because our idea of love is so different! We often think of love as being somewhat temporary don’t we. Lovers, may love each other today, but tomorrow? Who knows!
But God is not like that. God’s love continues no matter what. It always has been, and always will be. And within our families it is far reaching, even beyond our own generations. Wow!
And the term for fear in this verse, is not a negative in anyway. It is instead an awe, a respect for God that those who follow Him, carry with them, wherever they go! Hallelujah!
Heavenly Father thank You, that You not only love us, but Your love is eternal! Help us to follow You, and strengthen our faith, our trust in You. Hallelujah!
Amen and amen.
