Let your steadfast love comfort me according to your promise to your servant.
Psalm 119:76 ESV
Comforted by and in God’s love, what peaceful and freeing thought. God’s steadfast love, his never-ending, always enduring love. He loves those that serve him and do his will. God’s promises stand forever. They have no end, they never fail.
Love in the human heart can be a fleeting thing. It can be a wavering thing, but God’s love is always there. Only we walk away from it. He doesn’t withdraw it or withhold it. He gives his love freely. So freely that he gave Jesus to die for our sins so we could be re-claimed as his.
What a love this is. We that are in Christ are blessed with love beyond comprehension. A love the gives us a peace that surpasses all understanding. A love that affords reconciliation. Because of his love we have been brought back into relationship with him. He wants to comfort us, let's ask him to.
Let this verse be our prayer today.
“Let your steadfast love comfort me according to your
promise to your servant.”
