The Love of God

"How precious is your steadfast love, O God!" Psalm 36:7

Over and over again throughout the Psalms we see the phrase "steadfast love" referring to God's love for us. Now I understand the word steadfast, but decided to look it up the thesaurus to see some of the other descriptions for this word. Here are a few of the words I saw: unwavering, committed, dedicated, unswerving. Then I went back and read verse 7 a number of times inserting each of these words in place of the word steadfast. It was a fun exercise and helped me expand my thinking about God's amazing love.

How have you experienced God's steadfast love? What did you take in about God's love from Psalm 36? Tami W.
