Here are a few words from a song we sang at church last weekend, “Your Love Never Fails” by Chris McClarney:
I know I still make mistakes But you have new mercies for me everyday Your love never fails ———————————- And when the oceans rage I don’t have to be afraid Because I know that You love me Your love never fails
As we were singing this song, I began to think about the contrast of how I fail quite often, yet God never fails, and His love never fails. Normally I am very fearful of failure and try my best to avoid it. This usually results in being indecisive because I’m so afraid of making the wrong decision. It’s been my experience that people reject you when you fail, and I dont’ want to be rejected. The good news is that God is not like people. He does not reject me or withhold His love from me. His love never fails. As I thought about this, I was filled with an overwhelming feeling of safety. It’s okay if I fail because I’m safe in God’s love.
