Breaking Free: The Fruit of Unfailing Love

Sow for yourselves righteousness,
Reap the fruit of unfailing love,
and break up your unplowed ground;
for it is time to seek the Lord,
Until He comes
and showers righteousness on you.
Hosea 10:12

As I continue on this journey with my Lord and Savior, who graciously has revealed so much of my own heart to me, I realize I have much to learn about my Lord. Especially, in regards to His unfailing love for me.

I have tried to humanize God's love but God is not a human. His love cannot be compared with any form of love ever experienced. He loves without condition or expectancy to receive that same measure of love in return. God's ultimate expression of love was giving His One and Only Son so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. His love is Unfailing!

Similarities can be found in the relationship we have with our heavenly Father and that of our earthly parents. However, earthly parents just do not possess the capacity to love the way our Heavenly Father loves us. Some parents find it difficult to express their love appropriately to their children. My father was not very affectionate and did not always demonstrate his love for his children. In the Word of God, there are details painted in each book of the Bible of His perfect love for us. Since God's love is demonstrative their are numerous declarations in His Word about His perfect love for us, His children.

You will lead the people You have redeemed with your faithful love
Exodus 15:13a

Even if He causes suffering,
He will show compassion
according to His abundant, faithful love.
Lamentations 3:32

Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions
Ephesians 2:4-5


Those who have chosen to believe in God's unfailing love will bear fruit of that love. Believers who have chosen to receive and walk according to that unfailing love differ from all others. They do not question living in the security of His loving arms. If they happen to fall, they humble themselves, repent and are certain that God's unfailing love will help them back up.

Beth shares these valuable insights:

1. The child of God who trusts God's love possess security in God's leadership
2. The child of God who trusts God's love possess security in salvation
3. The child of God who trusts God's love possess security in God's mercy
4. The child of God who trusts God's love possess security in His comfort
5. The child of God who trusts God;s love possess security in His defense

If the enemy has planted a seed of doubting the unfailing love that God has for you, confess and pray for forgiveness for the sin of unbelief. Rebuke the devil's lies and seek HIM in His Word concerning His love for you.

Let's give access to the Lord so that fruit of His unfailing love can manifest in our lives.

  1. Sydney, what a powerful chapter of the book! I so loved your insights, once again.

    Believing God loves us this way, is one of the hardest things to really get through to our hearts, as Christians. Especially when our earthly models have been so vastly different to His.

    Loved this, thank you for sharing. May we all embrace His love, without doubt or question.
