1,000 Years song devotional 

Whether we’re up on the mountaintop or down in the valley, one thing is constant. God never turns His back on us. In good times and bad, in our successes and our failings, His love never changes.

 

‘Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.’

[Joshua 1:9]

 

Thought:

We all have good and bad days. Think back over the last week and there will probably be times when you found it easier to lean on God, and times when you turned away. And yet, despite your wandering heart and mine, God’s love is constant. Constantly reaching out to us. Constantly calling us back.

Sometimes those old Bible stories seem so distant and ancient. But look beyond the shepherds and the fishing boats, the dusty roads and the long journeys on foot, and you’ll see that it has always been this way. People have turned from God, their love for Him has grown cold, but God’s fierce and unswerving love has always called His people back.

Whenever we’re fearful or fed up, wounded or wandering away from Him, His love has always raged for us.

A thousand times a thousand years, God never changes. And because of that, we can live differently. Even today, with all the challenges and worries that might lie ahead of us, God’s love for us is on constant repeat.

 

Invitation:

On our own, none of us have the strength to face all of life without getting worried or fearful. But with God’s never-ending, always-beating, thousand-upon-thousand-year-old love, we can face the day with courage. So today, why not take a risk and trust His love to see you through the toughest things you face?

 

Prayer:

Father God, long before and long after my footprints mark this earth, your love is here. Your love is real. Your love is enough. Help me know that deeper and deeper each day, starting now. Amen
