“Why do you boast of evil, O mighty man? The steadfast love of God endures all the day….But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God. I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever.” Psalms 52:1 & 8 ESV
To be steadfast is to be resolute or dutifully firm and unwavering. It speaks of strength, loyalty, dependability and constancy. Great characteristics of God we would do well to be mindful of this week.
3 thoughts come to mind when I think of Gods steadfast love which will be great to meditate on during this week when spending time with Him:
1. To trust in the steadfast love of God is to trust in God and that He is steadfast. Maybe we can only trust in the steadfast love of God because He is steadfast.
2. As He is steadfast toward us, we can then be steadfast toward others. As God is strong, loyal, dependable and constant, so can we be, wherever we find ourselves.
3. To be steadfast due to the steadfast love of God is to flourish and bloom (like an olive tree).
Think of the difference we can make as we walk with a desire to display the steadfast love of God during this week to those around us.
Father God, thank You for Your steadfast love, the kind which never wavers towards me. Help me this week to be the same towards those in my life. Amen
