Good afternoon Church family,
Have you ever read Psalm 136? Every second line repeats “His steadfast love endures forever.” So what does God’s steadfast love mean, well it’s a love that is kind, good and merciful toward us.
The Bible also speaks of man’s heart being steadfast, Psalm 112:6-7 “Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
So how can the steadfast love of God which endures forever inspire in us a steadfastness of heart? Well, the meaning of steadfastness in the Greek is telling; it means perseverance, endurance and patience. No matter the situations we face, God can be depended upon, we know of His steadfast love, we trust in Him, we draw our minds to His goodness, kindness and mercy and so we can slow down and push aside the worry by trusting in Him. With this in mind we are able to then find the strength to persevere, to endure and to be patient in whatever life throws at us.
May you know the steadfast love of God that endures forever and may you become steadfast of heart.
