Moments with Maker Devotional Week #6
God’s Love Will Never Let You Go
For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation. Psalm 100:5
Time and time again we see in the Bible the vast, great, deep, everlasting, unfailing, merciful, and gracious love of our mighty God.
His love never ends.
He will never let you go.
Can you even imagine that?
No matter how far you have ran away from Him. No matter how far you have pulled away from Him. No matter how any times you went the other way. No matter who has hurt you…God’s love will never let you go!
How many of us have been told “I love you” by a person that cared for us, but yet, they rejected us, hurt us or left us? That is probably most of our experiences with love at one point in our lives whether it be in high school, college or sadly our marriage. The person leaves us, or love doesn’t overcome, or maybe we don’t love them anymore.
That my friend, is not how our Lord loves.
His love is pure, without any motive or manipulation.
He even gives us a choice to love him back. He never makes His creation love him.
But God shows his love for us, that while we were sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 ESV
When you feel lost, hurt, abandoned or rejected, ask the Lord to encourage your heart.
I was having a difficult day last week and my son Caleb, came up to me and said with such sweet sincerity,
“Mommy, God’s love will never let you go!”
He said it with such confidence and sincerity as he looked into my eyes. I was so blessed by God using my son to speak the truth to my heart. I instantly scooped him up and said, “You’re right my son, God’s love will never let me go! And God’s love will never let you go either Caleb.”
My friend, let me encourage you just as my son encouraged me- God’s love will never let YOU go!
Never! Not today, not tomorrow, not ever! His love is always available.
Allow those words to soak into your mind and heart.
God is for you.
He will never abandon you.
He will never leave you or forsake you.
He will fight your battles in the heavenlies and on this earth.
Romans 8:35-39 is asking the question, what can separate us from the love of Christ? Paul’s answer is a simple one but filled with depth: nothing!
Nothing in heaven or earth can separate you from the Lord’s love.
He has loved from the very beginning of time. God is love! Embrace that truth and now live it out. Walk in His love dear one because God’s love will never let you go!
