Will God's Love For You Change? Psalm 89:2

As children we learn that God loves us but a lifetime is not sufficient to comprehend its magnitude and beauties. The ancient poet wrote...

“I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.” Psalm 89: 2, NIV.
To “declare” something is to make it known or announce it. The author of this psalm felt he must declare its truths. It sounds like he would have shouted it from the rooftops.

God’s love doesn't just “stand,” it “stands firm;” and not just firm, but stands firm forever. To “stand” is to be bold, to oppose an obstacle without moving. The opposite is to fall and God’s love doesn't fall: it endures against all opponents.

Something that is firm will not move, it holds in place. There is not even a wiggle, tremor or shaking to suggest weakness in God’s love. It is not taken away or changed by circumstances or our actions.

It is not temporary and does not decay but last forever, time does not make The Almighty's love weaken.

When someone is faithful they are unwavering and constant; they can be trusted to always be the same. God’s faithfulness means his love will not be diluted by time or events other affections. God’s faithfulness is not an accident. God committed himself to faithfulness by an act of will. His faithfulness is not emotional but willful. He knew what sins we would commit and yet He resolved to give us his love and faithfulness.

That God’s love is "established in heaven" reaffirms that His love as immovable and unchangeable. "Heaven" is the essence of permanence. Since The Lord's love is established in heaven, its foundations are not in the world or my actions; earth may move and decay, time may pass, and humanity may go mad but nothing can diminish God’s love because it is “established in heaven." To be “established in heaven" is the ultimate security there is nothing higher or more firm.
