Have you ever wondered if you were truly loved by someone? This question reminds me of a scene of a young woman sitting on a window sill doting over her handsome suitor, plucking the petals of a daisy, as she recites the mantra “he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, he loves me not.” She longingly stares into the yonder, daydreaming, and vying for his attention. She wonders what she can do to earn his attention.
Each and every one of us was born with a void, a longing for love. A void that only God can fill. God is love. No doting. No daisies. Just, pure Love. Permanent Love. Unconditional Love. Unfailing Love.
In Ephesians 3: 17b – 19, the apostle Paul is tasked with trying to explain the Love of Christ in terms that a human might fathom understanding. He writes: “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. And to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Wow! Now that is what you call Love!
The Hebrew word Cheçed, translates into this form of permanent, never changing, never failing, always promised, always true, love. There is no amount of education, degrees, money, or qualifications, that will enable us to earn or comprehend the love of God.
No matter how many mistakes you have made, how many times you feel that you have sinned, how many times you have failed or fallen, God loves you just the same! His love for you has never changed, and it never will! Isaiah 54: 10 explains this, by saying: “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion for you.
Close your eyes. Take a deep breath, and let that sink deep into your soul. God Loves you, with an unfailing love! The most wonderful thing about Cheçed, God’s unfailing love, is that it is a free, unconditional, and unlimited gift!
Wearing this beautiful Cheçed 18 karat necklace is a tangible reminder of how much God loves you. Not only does He love you, but He always has, and He always will! Each time you adorn yourself with it, remember that there are no conditions, no measurements, and no limits to this Cheçed.
