A Love That Never Fails

“The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

One of the most important things we can do is to be totally dependent on God, because His Word is eternal and unfailing. In a world that is constantly trying to convince us to put our trust in that which changes and fades away, what might it mean to trust in God’s word, which never fades? The one thing that will remain constant and forever true is God’s love for us; His love won’t fade; it won’t fail us. It’s always there, especially when we need it the most! When everything in our world seems to be changing, it’s a comfort to know that we have a never changing God.

When all else fails, God’s light shines!

Have you ever counted on something to last forever? Storms pass… Leaves wilt… Problems come and go… Things happen… People change…but if we set the Lord always before us we will not be shaken! He “makes us as surefooted as a dear, enabling us to stand on mountain heights” (Psalm 18:33). God does not leave us alone when we feel that everything around us is unstable and uncertain; He stands beside us and strengthens us. No matter what we are going through, we can turn to Him for strength and encouragement. In a world that is forever changing, we can always trust our unchanging Lord.

“For I am the Lord, I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6)

People, places, and our circumstances are precarious and unpredictable and we can’t rely on our own will to remain stable, but one thing that sets God apart from us is that God is the same today as He was so many years ago. Even in the midst of our ever-changing world we serve a never-changing God. His love never changes… His faithfulness never changes… His mercy never changes… His ability to provide and meet our needs doesn’t waver. No matter what changes around you, God in all His glory and majesty will never diminish. His purposes are reliable and His Words are sure. God’s love stays the same through the ages; it’s a love that never fails.

"Nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God” (Romans 8:39)


  1. Yes, Yes and Yes! Beautiful , Denise. Thanks- we are on the same wavelength this beautiful Sunday morning!

  2. How thankful I am that He is unchanging. The same God that parted the Red Sea is the same God who knows me and cares about me. Amazing!

    Blessings and love,

  3. Sister Denise you are so right by posting this blog today LOVE never fails nor will it give up. Everyday we must ask the Lord to help us with this word. Yesterday I hosted a Prayer Online and as I was praying the Lord had me pray about this very thing LOVE....that we will pray and love one another just like Jesus did even the ones who are hard to love the one that won't allow us to love them and the ones we don' t's in the Love in our heart for Jesus that will cause us to be Motivated to do something...AMEN

    Great post have a lovely day today, it's hot here on the East Coast and so I am going to stay in doors and keep cool.

  4. Thank you ... this is an hopefull message for a sinner as me.

  5. I really like this Denise,
    We really do not like change though we are always in the midst of it...I think perhaps it is not the change as much as the loss of control over something that people do not like.
    Good thing God never changes and that HE is in control.
