What does Psalm 89:33 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 89:33

Nevertheless, my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from
Or "make it void" F11, not from Christ, who always was, and ever will be, the dear Son of his love, even while he was obeying, suffering, and dying; nor from all those that are in him, loved and chosen in him, from everyone of his spiritual seed, who are all dear sons, and pleasant children; and the love of God to his people is in Christ; and therefore there can he no separation from it; nor will it ever depart from them, or be utterly or at all taken from them, as to that itself, though sometimes the manifestations of it are withdrawn from them; but the love of God itself is invariable and unchangeable; see ( Romans 8:38 Romans 8:39 ) , nor is it removed when God afflicts and chastens his people; for his chastenings are from love, and in love; the reason why he chastens them is because he loves them, and he loves them while he is chastening them; he visits and comforts them, sympathizes with them, supports them, and supplies them, and makes all things work together for their good, ( Revelation 3:19 ) ,

nor suffer my faithfulness to fail;
in making good his engagements to Christ, in keeping the covenant made with him, and in fulfilling his promises to his people; and even when he afflicts them, it is in faithfulness to them; nor will he suffer them to be afflicted above what they are able to bear, and will support them under it, and deliver out of it, ( Psalms 119:75 ) ( 1 Corinthians 10:13 ) or "I will not falsify in my truth" {i}; or falsify his word; he is faithful that has promised, who will do it, yea, notwithstanding the unbelief of his people, ( Hebrews 10:23 ) ( 2 Timothy 2:13 ) .
