There is nothing we can do, no place where we can go, where God’s love doesn’t pursue and meet us there. God’s love knows no bounds. No no matter where we are, and no matter how we may feel, whether good or bad, God is there. We can’t get away, nor can we chase away God’s unconditional love for us.
This was at the heart of what King David wrote saying, “You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.” (Psalm 139:5-8)
The Lord is saying that while He cares about what we do, and is deeply hurt when we sin, He still loves us and will always love us. And He demonstrates just how far He will go to pursue us with His love.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Even when we were His enemy, living apart and separate from God, God loved us. God loves is even through the highest highs and the lowest lows, and that’s because nothing can separate us from His love.
Paul knew this saying, “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
So when we feel like we’ve blown it and as if God can in no way love us, know that God still loves us and in His unconditional love towards us He is pursuing His love relationship with us.
