“For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and he will guide us until we die.” Psalm 48:14
Most would agree that loyalty is becoming harder and harder to find. It seems that in this age of self-gratification, the only true loyalty we often see is the loyalty people have to themselves, and this shouldn’t surprise us. The Apostle Paul tells us, in 2 Timothy 3, that we will know we are living in perilous and dangerous times when people are “lovers of themselves.”
Even in the business world, companies find “brand loyalty” becoming rarer. For example, people used to be way more loyal to the brand of vehicle they would purchase, and you could refer to someone as a “Ford Person,” a “Chevy Person,” and so on. Now, folks more often shop for the best deal, lowest price, and financing options.
Webster’s Dictionary defines loyal as “faithful to a person to whom faithfulness is due.” From that perspective, loyalty is something that must continually be earned, and I get that. But, what do we call unwavering loyalty to a person who doesn’t deserve it and isn’t due it? God! Yes, our Heavenly Father epitomizes loyalty at the highest level, and we see this in His unwavering loyalty to us. And, His loyalty to us remains, even when we are least deserving.
Psalm 48:14 paints the picture of a God who is committed to us, and to be our guide, right up until the very end. Proverbs 18:24 describes Him as the “friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Hebrews 13:5 says that He “will never leave us or forsake us.”
Today, be reminded that we can rest knowing that His loyalty to us never waivers and will always be with us, even to the end.
