Lord, according to Your Word, what a man desires or craves deeply is unfailing love (Prov. 19:22). Every other use of the words “unfailing love” in Scripture is attributed to You alone. You are the only one capable of perpetually unfailing love. Help me to understand that my deep cravings for someone to love me with that kind of love were meant to be satisfied in You alone.

Lord God, in Your love You kept me from the pit of destruction; You have put all my sins behind Your back (Isa. 38:17). You will never fail to forgive the truly repentant sinner, O Lord, because You love us so much, You want us to have the full measure of Your joy within us (John 17:13).
