Turn, LORD, and deliver me; save me because of Your unfailing love. Psalms 6 : 4
Good morning, friends! Yesterday we read about the ‘Sustaining grace’ of the Lord. Today let us meditate about another nature of God. It is His ‘Unfailing love’.
King David says in Psalms 7 : 8, “Vindicate me, LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.” I remember Michael Wiebe, a missionary in Campus Crusade speaking about King David. He told that David was a great King, yet he was also an ordinary man. Why? It is very simple. He has committed adultery with Bathsheba. He has murdered her husband by planning wicked schemes. Yet he remained the man of God’s own heart! How is that even possible?
My fellowship leader in one of his sermons told that even though he sinned, as soon as he was convicted by the Lord through Nathan, he immediately turned back to God. He confessed his sins and he didn’t remain in his sinful nature. He learnt a good lesson from the Lord after which he didn’t go back to the sin! He implicitly taught us all what salvation is all about.
We’re the born sinners. We live in our fleshy desires and thoughts. But when the Lord convicts us we turn to Him and choose Him as our personal savior and we don’t go back to the sin again. This is what we call as salvation.
David was son confident that he didn’t do anything against the Lord or to anyone and so he was able to pray, “Lord, vindicate me according to my righteousness.” Can you & I say that? Are we having clean hearts and hands? Are we remaining in the Lord’s salvation all the times? If we go back to the old pits, will the Lord leave us unattended? Cheer up! This is for you. The answer is a big ‘No’.
Lord’s unfailing love will not be diminished even though we are unfaithful to Him. He will come & rescue us. Are you not experiencing the intimate relationship with Him before? Are you falling down from the very first love you had on Him? Does the devil remind you of your old sins again & again? Pray the prayer of David! “Save me because of Your unfailing love!” He knew the secret & he came back to God immediately. You also can always rely on God’s unfailing love. He is always ready to cleanse you & save you from all your sins. Are you ready today to come back to Him trusting His unfailing love?
