April: month of LOVE
Reading: Psalm 33, 2 Corinthians 1.
God Is Steadfast In His Love For Us
Text: ‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.’ Psalm 33: 12 (KJV)
The earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord. We see this in His word which stands forever, which he has planted into our thoughts to endure at all times. By His word, the heavens, the earth, and everything in them were made (John 1:3); and he has established us on earth to benefit from His creation. God also brings the counsel of the nations to nothing and frustrates the plans of the wicked for our sake. He watches over for us – to deliver our soul from death, to keep us alive even in famine, to help and to shield us.
Let us therefore rejoice in him and learn to trust in His holy name. Let us be glad in him, for his mercies endure forever and his steadfast love is upon us who put our hope in him. We should also be willing to share this love with other people – believers and non-believers alike. We should, for instance, be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort we have received from God (2 Cor. 1:4). And when we share the love we have received from God with others, we are spreading the goodness of the lord throughout the earth.
LEARN and APPLY: Trust in God’s unfailing love towards you, and let the love go round.
We thank you dear Lord for the steadfastness of Your love. Help us to partake generously in this love. Help us also to share this love with others around us.
