Week 47 Wednesday

No Limits

Today’s scripture selection: Psalms 134-136

Key verses: Psalm 136:1

When you think of the words endure or endurance – what do they bring to mind?

  • An athlete pushing herself to that point of almost breaking – and then beyond?
  • A soldier accomplishing something seemingly super-human for the sake of duty?
  • An exhausted mother or father doing just one more thing that needs to be done?
  • A faithful worker going the extra mile for the boss?

These are the types of people and things we tend to think of.

But scripture uses the word endures for something particularly wonderful – the love of God.

In Psalm 136, in 26 verses, it says it 26 times.

“His love endures forever.”

Not His love endures until He just can’t take it anymore; not His love endures until He gets fed up; not His love endures as long as you do what He says.  It says

“His love endures forever.”

There are few verses of scripture that say so much with such clear brevity.

The story of God’s grace as it is especially shown in the ministry and life of Jesus Christ makes one thing very clear.

God’s love has no limits.  The only way a barrier can be placed between it and you is if you, in defiant free will, insist on putting one up.

The apostle Paul said it this way:

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

It’s God’s no limits gift to you.

The only question is: will you accept it?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for your enduring love.  May I always gratefully accept it just as you offer it.  AMEN.
