Priceless Love

One of the deepest needs human beings must have met is the need to be loved.  Our parents are are among the first human beings to demonstrate love to us.  Yet for some, their parents demonstrated cruelty or less than loving acts towards them...  These individuals move through life in search of people who will meet that basic need only to find more heartache.  Maybe that's your story today.  Or maybe you have experienced true love and heartbreaking love.  Whatever the situation might have been for you, God is the ONLY one who can offer you "unfailing love".  What does it mean to be loved with an unfailing love?  This kind of love is limitless.  It's the kind of love that is continuous and inexhaustible.  God's never in short supply of offering out His love to you.  He will never impose limits on how much or how often He will show His love to you.  You can not do anything that would cause Him to stop loving you. 

Do you realize how priceless it is to have access to a God with this kind of love?  Can you imagine that He reached down from heaven to bring you His Son so you could experience this love?  So, if our God offers us this kind of love, why do we continue to measure His love against mere human love?  His love is not like man's love.  His ways are not like man's ways.  Know your God.  Study His Word.  Walk forward confidently knowing you ARE loved by the God of this world with an unfailing capacity to love you.  Your need is fully met in Him.

Psalm 36:7
"How priceless is your unfailing love! 
Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings."
