Unfailing Love {#Write31Days}

Sorrows are part of everyone’s life.  It seems that in the past year almost everyone I know has went through some sorrowful times.  Good people have been hurt, lost loved ones, faced sickness and disease, dealt with disappointment.  Good people face sorrows, this is a fact.

Yet the scripture says in Psalms 32:10 “many sorrows come to the wicked.”  So why does this scripture focus on the wicked?  Did God miss that good people also face sorrows too? I think so many people who face sorrows immediately begin to question “What did I do wrong?”, “Is  God punishing me?”

One of the definitions of but is:

  1. used to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned

So this scripture could read many sorrows come to the wick, those who trust the Lord are surrounded by the unfailing love of God.

psalms3210God knows that we will face sorrows, even as Christians walking closely with Him.  However, unlike the wicked, our trust is in Him.  And trust in Him carries many promises.

Our trust is in His unfailing love.  For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ. John 1:17

Our trust is that even though things are sorrowful, we are surrounded by Him.  But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. I John 4:8

Our trust is in the Comforter of our sorrow.  All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfortII Corinthians 1:3

Our trust is in the One that brings peace in our sorrow.  I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Those who place their trust in God will go through sorrows.  However, they will not overtake us.  This we can trust because God is love.  His love in unfailing and will surround us in our time of sorrow.  He will bring to us comfort and peace to sustain us during times of sorrow.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
