Lamentations 3:22 (ESV) The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end.
Have you ever stopped to take a moment and consider how much God loves you? When we truly examine our own hearts and our sinfulness, we cannot help but to ascribe to the Lord his unfailing love for us. If we were to be treated as our sin deserves, we would not have had a Savior who died for our unrighteousness. God’s love for us is unwavering. Although, we may face hardships in life, we have not been dealt with as our sins deserve. Because of the steadfast love of God, we are yet alive. We read in Romans 6:23 “The wages of sin is death. . .” We have all sinned and we live in a fallen world but God continues to grant us new mercies each day. We often struggle with loving ourselves because of sin, guilt, shame and a lack of self-worth. Others may turn their backs on you and refuse to help you. Family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances may disappoint you when you need them the most. Yet God loves us unconditionally. Yes, we may have to deal with some consequences of our sinful actions. But consider how God’s love for us never ceases. In spite of our sins, God offers forgiveness to all. Remember, the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. God’s love never fails.
