Scripture –

Proverbs 20:28 – Steadfast love and faithfulness preserve the king, and by steadfast love his throne is upheld

Observation –
Steadfast love and faithfulness is what God promises to His people through His covenant with them. Unchanging character of love and faithfulness is the same in God from creation, now and until Jesus returns. The king, who in ancient Israel was a representation of God on earth , will have his reign by God when he shows steadfast love to his people.

Application –
God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. God loves everyone and wants to have a relationship with all people. God’s steadfast love and faithfulness is offered in the new covenant by the shed blood of Jesus to appropriate for the sin debt which we are unable to pay on our own. God is all loving while He is a just and Holy God. I must remember daily that apart from Jesus I would be dead in my sin with no way to be reconciled to God. I need to place my faith in God and trust Him completely. Jesus in the King of Kings who is alive and throne will reign forever!

Prayer –
Thank you for you steadfast love and faithfulness and sending Jesus so I can know you and make you known. Let the power of the Holy Spirit lead to love you and all people well to extend your glory.
