“Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.” Psalm 33:22 (ESV)
The last verse in Psalm 33 is a short prayer. This is really a prayer of faith. When we think of God’s love as enduring and never failing, that is faith. We believe that God loves us and always will. The “steadfast love” can also be rendered as “unfailing love” and we can believe that God loves us and always will. Our verse also mentions our hope and of course that is not wishful thinking, it is expectation. When we expect God to show us His love that is also faith. So, in faith, let’s expect God to demonstrate his steadfast love to us. And, let’s expect it to be not a once in a while experience but a lasting all time experience. That’s what it means to have God’s love resting upon us all the time. God’s love is with us all the time, that is a promise God has given to us and we can trust in it with a hope that will not disappoint us – not ever.
