“Constantly Loving & Faithful”
By Zach Wood
Psalm 117 NLT
Praise the Lord, all you nations. Praise him, all you people of the earth. For his unfailing love for us is powerful; the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever.
Most of us notice many changing things every single day. Whether we are going with our family somewhere, going to work, out on a walk or somewhere else, we notice changing things.
I don’t have a long drive to my job each day, but one thing I notice each day is the gas prices. I have to laugh, both at the gas prices and at myself because I react to them. Sometimes I say, “Oh sure, there they go up even higher!” when other times I say in a surprised voice, “Wow, they went back down!” We all know there’s nothing consistent about gas prices other than they’re constantly inconsistent.
I notice a lot of other things throughout my day, whether I am driving, at my workplace, at home with my family or other places. It seems no matter where I go or what I am doing, I notice something that constantly changes. Ads and products are always changing. Weather is always changing. Fads are always changing. Technology is always changing.
I could go on and on about all that changes. It’s like I can’t rely on anything to stay the same. No matter what, something is always changing around me. Sometimes, it really drives me crazy because I’d like to see something stay consistent.
While things are changing all the time around me, it is such a great encouragement to know that each day I wake, God is always the same. His unfailing love never fails me and it never changes. He doesn’t love me less or love me more. He doesn’t change His condition on loving me. His faithfulness isn’t different today than from yesterday. I’m so thankful that I can totally and completely rely on His promise to always be faithful and loving to me no matter what.
Friends, I want to encourage you all with this Psalm. We can praise God each day because He is unchanging. His love never fails. He will always remain the same. He is always faithful no matter what. Even when times are tough and life seems unbearable, His love endures.
Praise Him today and every day for His unending love and faithfulness!
