I have loved you with an everlasting love.
God doesn’t always step in and stop suffering, but his love is assured in good times and bad. His love is unfailing and unshakable: “Though the mountains be shaken . . . yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken” (Is 54:10).
The apostle Paul declared that nothing—“neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future . . . nor anything else in all creation”—can separate us from God’s love (Rom 8:38–39).
You will never be where God’s love isn’t. You may not see it; you may not seek it; you may not believe it; you may not accept it. But you cannot escape it.
His is an everlasting love. It couldn’t be otherwise, for God is everlasting and “God is love” (1 Jn 4:16).
The measure of God’s love
is that he loves without measure.
