I have loved you with an everlasting love;

I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

Jeremiah 31:3


But the steadfast love of the Lord is

from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,

and his righteousness to children’s children,

Psalm 103:17


In overflowing anger for a moment

    I hid my face from you,

but with everlasting love

I will have compassion on you,”

    says the Lord, your Redeemer.

Isaiah 54:8


What then shall we say to these things? 

If God is for us, who can be against us? 

He who did not spare his own Son

but gave him up for us all,

how will he not also with him

graciously give us all things?

Romans 8:31-32

In the waning hours of Valentine’s Day when we have been thinking a little more about love and what it means, I have been reading these Scriptures to remind myself of the love GOD has shown me.

An everlasting love…by a Redeemer…who draws me with His unfailing kindness.  One whose love is steadfast, kind, compassionate.

Whose anger lasted for a moment (when it was vented on Jesus on the cross?)…and now flows out in compassion toward me.

He is for us! And if that is true, we don’t need to fear others who might be against us. They are unimportant…and if He is for us, will He not also give us all things needed to live life?  Yes!

Of course, these were only a few of the verses I came across, but they were very encouraging as I thought about His love for me…and you.

Which verse is most encouraging to you?

Which message do you need to hear most today as you think about the love you give and the love you receive?
