And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroard in our hearts by the Holy Ghost who was given unto us.
Our God is full of surprises. He tailor-makes every miracle; He individually designs every life. Every day is different, and His every deliverance is unique. Yet He is never capricious, changeable, erratic, or unstable. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amid the complexity of His manifold ways, there is the solid foundation of His love.
We can always count on that. The Bible longs for us to understand “what is the breadth and length and depth and height–to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge” (Ephesians 3:18-19). According to the apostle John, the more we understand the shoreless ocean of God’s love, the less we’ll fear the choppy waters of life, for “perfect love casteth out fear” (1 John 4:18).
If you feel your life is unpredictable and unstable right now, focus on His steady, unchanging love. Thank Him for “the love of God—–. Resting in the predictable and perfect security of God’s love will bring revival to our souls.(From Turning Point: Scripture references changed to KJV)
[God’s love] is shed abroad, as sweet ointment, perfuming the soul, as rain watering it and making it fruitful.
