Lately I have been spending a lot of time in the Psalms during my
One of the fun things is that I feel like I am uncovering
What do I mean by that?
The more days that I spend reading Psalms, the more my eye
keeps seeing these words:
The more that I became aware of these words, the more
they just seemed to be everywhere.
Sometimes they were in a verse individually but often they
were linked together.
faithful: firm adherence to a person or thing or to a promise.
synonyms: loyal, constant, staunch, steadfast, resolute
steadfast: a steady and unwavering course in love, allegiance or conviction.
firmly fixed in place, immovable, not subject to change.
Don’t you love knowing that God’s faithfulness expresses itself by adhering
Himself to us thus keeping His promises.
He is firmly fixed in place…immovable…He’s not changing.
You could say he is super glued to us.
He’s not changing His mind about us.
He is staying the course with His unwavering course of love.
I don’t know about you but that makes my heart swell just like
blowing air into a lifeless balloon.
Here are some of my favorites:
“But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house,”
Psalm 5: 7
“All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love
for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.”
Psalm 25: 10 (see v. 7)
“For the word of the LORD is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.”
Psalm 33: 4 (see v. 18b, 22)
“Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.”
Psalm 36: 5 (see v. 7, 10)
“Do not, O LORD, withhold your mercy from me;
let your steadfast love and your faithfulness
keep me safe forever.”
Psalm 40: 11
“Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.”
Psalm 63: 3
I could go on and on but I will let you uncover some for
Look for his steadfast love and faithfulness in the written
Search for repeated words that shout of God’s nature
and character or ones that you need for your mind to be refreshed
In that Psalm of all Psalms, Psalm 119 declares,
“I treasure your word in my heart,
so that I may not sin against you.”
Psalm 119 speaks so much about God’s faithfulness and
steadfast love and the psalmist’s desire to walk in that way.
Think of your time in the Word as a treasure hunt.
There is no treasure if it remains buried and unearthed.
Dig deep and enjoy the precious gems.
“It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night.”
Psalm 92: 1,2
