day 10: unshakeable love

Psalm 106:1-12; Luke 1:70-75

“Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!…Our fathers, when they were in Egypt, did not consider your wondrous works; they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love, but rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.  Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make known his mighty power.  He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry, and he led them through the deep as through a desert.  So he saved them from the hand of the foe and redeemed them from the power of the enemy.” – Psalm 106: 3, 7-10

“as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old, that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us;to show the mercy promised to our fathers and to remember his holy covenant,the oath that he swore to our father Abraham, to grant us that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.” – Luke 1:70-75

His love is indeed long suffering and steadfast.  He continues to put up with us…that should be proof enough.  even with all the signs and wonders (10 plagues in egypt) we forget all about Him and complain when we hit a wall (in egypt at the red sea)…even when He gets us through the walls and silences the antagonizers (walking through the red sea)…even when He’s gotten us where we need to be (israel)…even after He’s taken us back again and again (return from exile)…even when He has given His own life to save us (Jesus)…we forget how He loves us.  how dare we say He doesn’t love us.  good thing He’s not like us.  good thing He’s God.  He’s got a reputation to uphold.

how has He gotten you through time and again?  how has He taken you back time and time again?  how has He shown Himself to you?

thank you Lord for your unshakeable love

  1. There’s something about this post that reminds me of 2 Timothy 2:

    11 Here is a trustworthy saying:
    If we died with him,
    we will also live with him;
    12 if we endure,
    we will also reign with him.
    If we disown him,
    he will also disown us;
    13 if we are faithless,
    he remains faithful,
    for he cannot disown himself.

    How God is faithful and steadfast even when we are are not… I like how you put it — “good thing He is God.”

    (On a related note, I always wonder how disowning seems to work differently…)
