Daily Devotional | God’s Love Will Never Fail

1 Corinthians 13:8 NIV
“Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”

When we talk of God’s love (and we know too that God is love) we can also say that God’s love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:8) and God’s love or God Himself will never experience disappointment because He is sovereign. “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37)”. Because if God experiences disappointment then His love fails.

It is very important for us to remember this aspect or quality of God’s unfailing love. To say that God’s love never fails is also to say and declare that God’s love is always 100% successful. And of course God’s love is not passive but always an active one. There will always be that special moment when God is embracing us and yet for a wonderful purpose only known by God we are not aware of that embrace.

When God says to Jeremiah in 31:3 “Yes I have loved you with an everlasting love” God is not only telling Jeremiah that His love is eternal, but God is also assuring him of a love that never fails. This eternal love that never fails is also the same kind of love that was expressed by Jesus Himself to His disciples. Remember when Jesus said “God so loved the world,” we have to understand it in the context of God’s everlasting love in Jeremiah 31:3.

Remember too that God never changes therefore His love never changes. To say that each time we sin against God; He became angry with us and became disappointed is to say that God always changes His mind and His love for us also changes.

What a comfort it is that God is patient with us, and how encouraging that God’s love is unfailing. He is our guide in relating to others. Because He loves us so much, and overlooks our many faults, we can make room in our hearts to love others and forgive them their faults.

Just as we are likely to disappoint the expectations of others because of our afflictions, we must make an effort and make allowance for others and their various weaknesses. Sometimes they will disappoint us with moral failings. We understand better than most “the weakness of the flesh” as the Bible says.

Our weakness may not be sin related, but we know how well circumstances and surroundings can affect one’s actions and abilities. Our capacity and understanding for human failings should be huge because of our experience with affliction.

The love and grace of God upholds us in affliction. God’s love and mercy, His compassion and kindness can be a great comfort to us in affliction. We are sobered by just how weak the human body can be, and just how much it fails us, and yet because of our experiences in affliction we can express love and compassion that is born out of affliction and our experiences with suffering. Of course we could let our experiences make us bitter and hard in our hearts, but the better path is to learn from our difficulties and let our challenges soften and teach rather than harden and embitter us.

Take comfort in the fact that God’s love for you is unfailing. Know that no matter how much you fall short in life, God is not willing to give up on you. And as you face your challenges and difficulties, be willing to make room for the shortcomings of others, we are all imperfect beings, and we share the imperfections of humanity. And through it all, remember that Godly love (agape) will never fail.

May God bless you today.

Scripture of the day:  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 8:37-39

    Pray 4 me I’ve a problem of musturbation, plz help, I don’t knw how to stop doing this

    • Dear friend, thanks for your first step of deliverance, which is the acknowledgement and confession of your struggles. Only one more step, or two.

      “1 Corinthians 10:13 “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”

      This is to say that if you obey, reverse the environment of your operations, stop yielding to its desires, you will overcome.

      “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things”. (Philippians 4:8 NKJV). Focus your mind on the word of God, and obey what it says.

      Finally, find a Bible based church and a Christian mentor, where you will imparted with a fresh anointing and Holy Spirit: -a spiritual instructor

      We will pray for you… In Jesus name.
