Jesus my Lord Will Love Me For Ever

Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.

Psalm 89:2

Battle Drill Daily Devotional

Read Psalm 89:1-52.

I was seven years old when I fell in love with my first girlfriend. We used to share a chaste kiss in the cloakroom before going home from school each day. I thought it would last forever. It didn’t!

That’s the problem with human love. It doesn’t matter how many promises we make or receive, human love is limited. It sometimes dries up or runs out.

But God’s love never gives up. The Bible promises us it will last forever. Not just for our time on earth, but for eternity. It’s long enough to last forever.

God cannot love you more than he does now. And there is nothing you can do that will make him love you less. That’s as true today as it will be 10,000 years into eternity.

All we have to do is accept his love. When we do, we will sing of his love, just like the psalmist did.

Jesus my Lord will love me for ever,
From him no power of evil can sever,
He gave his life to ransom my soul,
Now I belong to him.

Now I belong to Jesus,
Jesus belongs to me,
Not for the years of time alone,
But for eternity.
