Everyday I am reminded of how God loves us! Today as I was reading in Psalms 36, I wanted to highlight the last half of the chapter – it is so good….
Psalms 36:5-10 Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. 6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O Lord. 7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. 8 They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. 10 Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your righteousness to the upright of heart!
Wow! God’s Steadfast love for us extends to the heavens – can we even comprehend how huge this is??? He is also so very faithful, He will do the things He says He will do! We can take refuge (rest, hide, be cared for) in His & His LOVE for us. This is so precious – so comforting in any time!
This is ALL for us as well, if we take what He is offering – salvation. We are like a person in jail. We are being punished for our sins, but Jesus took our punishment, when He died on the cross for our sins. So now, that jail cell is wide open, we just need to get up and go through that open door. That open door is trusting in Jesus’s finished work on the cross. He died so that we can be free! When Jesus rose from the dead, it was the proof that He is God’s Son – that He has victory over sin! We can have victory over sin too – we just need to accept God’s forgiveness.
I pray that you are finding joy and peace in God’s Word – knowing that His Steadfast Love is for you…
