Even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, my love won’t walk away from you. —Isaiah 54:10 MSG
Do you find it hard to believe the depth of God’s love? If it’s hard for you to reach out in love to other people, it may be that you are not secure in knowing that you are unconditionally loved. If you are secure in God’s love for you, you can handle the imperfect ways of other people. You can concentrate on loving them and not worry too much if they don’t make you feel deeply loved in return.
Meditate on this truth: God’s love for you is more solid than a mountain. Mountains are slowly worn down by rain, wind, sun, and snow, but nothing wears down God’s love. No earthquake will shake his love. Nothing bad you’ve done, no personality quirk or limitation of yours can undermine his absolute delight in you just the way you are. Let his love to enrich your life and the lives of those around you.
Food for Thought: Picture a mountain. God’s love for you is much taller and wider, and he promises that his love will never fail.
