I had to chuckle when I saw this same saying inscribed over the doorway of a cafe! I admit that I am a “chocoholic” but I do have my standards. I am most tempted with the dark and only in certain forms. Indulging in that creamy satisfying taste never lets me down. Chocolate always lives up to my expectation. But before long, I would have to “fall” into it again to have that same satisfying experience. The expression, “falling in love,” makes love seem haphazard and unintentional. If we can fall in, perhaps we can climb out as well.
Today’s verse speaks of a love that stands firm forever. It is a love that is constant and true because of the One who is doing the loving! Beginning this relationship does not involve falling into it, unless we are falling to our knees in repentance and humility!
It is understandable that love can disappoint. Love between flawed humans is in a constant state of flux. Our ever-changing emotions make our love unreliable. But there is a love that does not change. God’s love is so great that it reaches to the skies! (Ps. 57:10) He will never disappoint. That is because His love does not depend on me but on His faithful promise. His faithfulness to His Word is untouchable there in Heaven itself!
What a huge comfort to know that the Lord is never going to give up on me! Nothing is going to change His love. God is Love in its most beautiful and purest form.
How amazing it is that You can love me, Lord! Help me believe it on this Valentine’s Day!
