God's love is relentless


The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.

Relentless.  Pretty awesome word.  Dictionaries state it is something that is oppressively constant or inflexible.  There are many things in life that are relentless.  Some of them are great while others aren’t good at all.

When it comes to our God, He really is relentless about us, His kids, and about His character and actions.  For that, I am very grateful.

The group Hillsong United sings a song by the same name, relentless, and I have been rolling over the concepts and truth much that last several hours.  That began as I mowed the grass listening to music.  I played the song several times.  It still has me thinking and praising God.  His love is relentless!

"Relentless"

Salvation sounds a new beginning
As distant hearts begin believing
Redemption's bid is unrelenting
Your love goes on…

You carry us
When the world gives way
You cover us
With Your endless grace
Your love is relentless…

The time is up for chasing shadows
You gave the world a light to follow
A hope that shines beyond tomorrow
Your love goes on…

Tearing through the veil of darkness
Breaking every chain, You set us free
Fighting for the furthest heart You gave
Your own life for all to see…

You carry us,
You cover us,
Your love is relentless...

Powerful truth that is life changing.  When a person understands their value, given by God, everything comes in to perspective.  Believe His love.  Move a little further and look in the proverbial mirror of your heart and see the potential that God has given you.

His character is relentless.  It is the same.  He loves us always.  He is for us always.  He is ready to serve through us and bless others through us.  Let God’s relentless love cover and hold you.  Let others experience that relentless love too.

NOTE: today’s e-devotion will be the last for this month.  They will begin again on July 5th.  Thank you for allowing me to share with you and for allowing my father to be away
