“For Your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in Your faithfulness.”
Steadfast means firm and unwavering. Loyal, faithful, committed, devoted.
Have you ever thought about God’s love for you being FIRM and UNWAVERING?
No matter what happened yesterday, no matter the mistakes of today, no matter the circumstances of the future…His love for you is steadfast.
For the times others are unfaithful, God’s love for you is loyal.
When others let you down, when you let yourself down, God remains committed.
If we know and believe God’s love for us is steadfast, how do we keep it ever before our eyes?
I think this is the key to this verse from Psalms. Keeping His love before us is a major key to living the abundant life He gives us. Fixing our eyes on Jesus is one of the most helpful ways to doing battle with the enemy and not losing heart.
How do we keep His steadfast love before us?
Memorize the Word.
Do not forsake meeting with other believers.
Small steps of faith.
Great is His Faithfulness
When we keep His steadfast love before us, we are able to walk in the knowledge and security of His FAITHFULNESS.
Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever will be.
Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed thy hand hath provided;
great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. Refrain
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! Refrain
