Psalm 89:2 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer:  Love Standing Firm, Expanded.  Topics:  2 at end.

I Will Sing of His Love Forever
Psalm 89:2 (Pt. 3)  “I will sing of the loving kindness of Yahweh forever. With my mouth, I will make known your faithfulness to all generations. I indeed declare, ‘Love stands firm forever. You established the heavens. Your faithfulness is in them.’”  (WEB)  (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

The entire 13th chapter of I Corinthians defines love.  When we read this, we see the attributes of that love which stand firm. 

I Corinthians 13 – Weymouth New Testament
“1 If I can speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but am destitute of Love, I have but become a loud-sounding trumpet or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I possess the gift of prophecy and am versed in all mysteries and all knowledge, and have such absolute faith that I can remove mountains, but am destitute of Love, I am nothing.
3 And if I distribute all my possessions to the poor, and give up my body to be burned, but am destitute of Love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind. Love knows neither envy nor jealousy. Love is not forward and self-assertive, nor boastful and conceited.
5 She does not behave unbecomingly, nor seek to aggrandize herself, nor blaze out in passionate anger, nor brood over wrongs.
6 She finds no pleasure in injustice done to others, but joyfully sides with the truth.
7 She knows how to be silent. She is full of trust, full of hope, full of patient endurance.
8 Love never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if there are languages, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be brought to an end.
9 For our knowledge is imperfect, and so is our prophesying;
10 but when the perfect state of things is come, all that is imperfect will be brought to an end.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, felt like a child, reasoned like a child: when I became a man, I put from me childish ways.
12 For the present we see things as if in a mirror, and are puzzled; but then we shall see them face to face. For the present the knowledge I gain is imperfect; but then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And so there remain Faith, Hope, Love—these three; and of these the greatest is Love.”

In this Weymouth translation, we see the term “destitute of . . .,” love, as opposed to the more common “have not” or “do not have.”  This translation puts it more bluntly:  Destitute.  Destitute means totally without, lacking completely.  Perhaps “destitute,” in common usage, has a connotation of being lacking to the point of hopelessness.

Anyway, when we are destitute of love?— faith, generosity, and golden speech count for nothing.  This is because Love is the only true thing that stands firm forever.  It is the bedrock of life.  “For God so loved the world . . . “ (John 3:16).

Love never fails.  This could be the watchwords of pro-LIFE work.  It never fails when loving mothers in dire straits; it never fails when basing pro-LIFE work on God’s Word.  It never fails in the heart of a mother who is so under its effect that she chooses LIFE for her unborn-yet-problematic baby. 

Lord, help us to claim this.  Love stands firm because it never fails.

Topics:  Pray for firm love to be the capstone of all pro-Life work.
