Elevated Faith

A Love That Lifts

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,

Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more.

But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry,

From the waters lifted me—now safe am I.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me!

When nothing else could help, love lifted me!

Many of us have sung this hymn, “Love Lifted Me.”

Love lifts a sinful broken heart not just any love, but the love of God.

In this season of love, nothing can lift our hearts like the love of God. Girlfriends break up with us. Friends abandon us. Colleagues try to bypass us. Even our families may fail to understand us. But God’s love for us never changes.

Even when we act unlovable, God continues to love us. When we are undesirable, He embraces us. When it seems that the world has turned against us, God’s love remains. He has promised never to leave us. Life can certainly leave us feeling broken and confused. Often, disappointments come to teach us more about the depths of God’s love. In desperation, we turn to God. This is when we discover that only His love can lift us up and restore our hope.

Today, we may be struggling to find another way around our problems, hoping that someone’s love will bring relief, but no other love can help us like God’s love. Only His love has the ability to satisfy our every need. Right now, you are wondering if God really loves you because you yielded to sin. Or you allowed the world and its trappings to come between you and your Saviour. Cry to Him, and He will restore the joy of your salvation. And your testimony will be “When nothing else could help, love lifted me.”

“Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:8).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, today heal the broken and hurting places in my heart, soul, and mind, so that I may focus my hope and vision on Your unfailing love. Father, I pray during this season of human love that I won’t look to anyone for love. God, help me train my eyes on You and please restore my joy. I pray in the name of Christ. Amen.
