“But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him…” (Psalm 103:17, ESV).
In this psalm that speaks of God’s comfort and care, we find further solace in the reminder that God is not contained by our limits. Following reflections on human mortality, the finitude of mankind, comes this statement of God’s infinity. But the contrast brings hope, for just as God is eternal, so is His faithfulness and love. God’s love carries His people past the boundaries of mortality, and into His glorious future.
In every frailty and failure, remember the abiding, enduring, everlasting love of God. Christ has set us free from captivity to the past, and from the threat of the future. In Him we may rest secure, and face with confidence the challenges of each new day, trusting in the saving power of God’s everlasting love.
