I have been encountering awesome measures of love this past month or so, and I just happened to be sitting here when this song came to my heart. Unfailing, ever forgiving, unconditional love. That is the Lord’s love. So many times I forget what it truly is, what it truly means. I tell my kids so many times “I love you ttthhhhiiiisssss much” and stretch as wide as I can. How much more is God’s love for us? How awe inspiring is that? We so take for granted the love of God. He sent His only Son to die for us, for our sins. He was beaten for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities. We should be rising up, jumping up, and shouting for all the world to hear about what an awesome, loving God we serve! I have just been pondering these things this morning.
Psalms 36 (The Message)
5-6 God’s love is meteoric,
his loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic,
his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse,
slips through the cracks.
7-9 How exquisite your love, O God!
How eager we are to run under your wings,
To eat our fill at the banquet you spread
as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water.
You’re a fountain of cascading light,
and you open our eyes to light.
So, when you’re feeling down, or unloved, or just gloomy, take a look at this verse. Close your eyes and imagine a spectacular love – a prolonged love. Imagine loyalty that is inconceivably large, purpose that is huge or colossal. His verdicts? They have no limits in range or scope. And then, in ALL of this HUGENESS, know that his eyes are watching over even the smallest of small beings. His heart knows each of us intimately. That should make your heart SOAR!
