Psalm 89:19-37

In Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne is a young orphan who had never had a close personal friend, someone with whom she could share her deepest secrets. That changed when she moved to Avonlea and met Diana. The two became the best of friends, with a closeness that seemed like it would last forever. Inevitably circumstances changed. Other priorities came into their lives and eventually, they became less involved in each other’s life.

Most of us can remember “best friends” from our younger years whom we seldom, if ever, hear from any longer. In contrast to our human relationships that come and go, God’s promise to David was that He would love David forever! There would never come a time when David would not be loved by God. What a promise!

The truth is that God longs to hold each one of us in that kind of relationship; one that would never spoil or fade. His Word reminds us that nothing “in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39b). That’s a promise we can count on.
