Good morning, Monday Morning Meditation readers!
I feel a few more Psalms series coming on in the near future. For now, I’ll share with you these verses.
For the word of the Lord holds true,
and everything he does is worthy of our trust.
He loves whatever is just and good,
and his unfailing love fills the earth.
I had the privilege of leading the church I attend in the song portion of the worship service yesterday. The pastor who heads up the worship schedule requested that I teach the congregation “How He Loves.” I written about this song before on the blog.
As we sang this song, I pondered the love of our Father God. What does it mean for His love to be “unfailing?” I imagine it is so much more than we could even imagine.
Then, I came across these verses.
His unfailing love fills the earth. That’s how expansive it is.
There is nothing we can do to make God love us more. And there is nothing we can do to make Him love us any less.
God is love. It is the core of who He is.
And everything He does is worthy of our trust.
I prayed as we sang yesterday that the congregation would be able to fully receive God’s love. I pray the same thing for you today. Stop for a moment before continuing on in your day, and pray that for yourself, as Paul prayed for the Ephesians (ch. 3):
I pray….may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be fillws with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Have a good week! See you Friday 🙂
