One of the Reasons You can Trust God

May 14, 2015

""The lovingkindness of God endures all day long."" (Psalm 52:1b)

I trust in the lovingkindness of God forever and ever."" (Psalm 52:8b)

The lovingkindness of God is amazing. I love the most literal translation of this compound Hebrew word. God is ""loving"" but He is also ""kind."" Meditate on that truth for very long and it will change you.

You will realize the opinion Satan has pumped into your mind of a God who is angry at you or, at best, tolerates you but with continually disappointment, is dead wrong. God loves His children with an ever-lasting love. And His kindness toward you ""endures all day long."" 

A HUMAN COMPARISON

Think of the kindest person you know. To be with them is a continual joy. Regardless of your sinfulness or foolishness, they always respond in kindness. In fact, you can receive strong, straightforward truth from them because you know it is consistently wrapped in authentic kindness.

Now multiply that ten billion times. Magnify it to the heights of heaven and you will begin to approach the kindness of God towards His children.

A REASON TO RELAX INTO FAITH

This is why David trusted God. He believed in God's nature. God was easy to trust and easy to follow for David because he was swallowed up in the full knowledge of the love and kindness of His Master. He knew that God was a Shepherd who would never lead his sheep in wrong paths because He is intrinsically and eternally kind.

And David's God—with this consistent, unbelievably gracious nature, is the same God you will experience today. The longer you follow Him, the more clearly you will understand. You cannot exhaust His kindness. It endures all day long.
