Think about his love…how often do we do that? Just contemplate how much God loves us, how much He loves you.
We sang this song in church today it evoked many memories:
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation. O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation! All ye who hear, now to his temple draw near; join me in glad adoration! Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee; surely his goodness and mercy here daily attend thee. Ponder anew what the Almighty can do, who with his love doth befriend thee. Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him! All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him! Let the amen sound from his people again; gladly forever adore him.
It reminded me of all that God has done on my behalf, and that He is worthy of my Praise. I felt so humbled and yet treasured at the same time.
God has drawn near to us. He made us in His Image. He sent His Son to die for us- so that we might have forgiveness and life eternal if we put our trust in Him and acknowledge our need for Him. So mysterious- yes too wonderful for me to comprehend.
I do not understand that kind of love- we don’t see it much here on earth. Love completely devoid of self- an outpouring of passionate feeling regardless of whether those feelings are reciprocated.
When we turn our eyes upon God, upon Jesus, we can find peace in affliction, hope in despair, and the strength to endure. He promises that He is faithful.
So I pray that today you spend a little time pondering His kind of love. Crack open that Bible and see His love in action. One more song to leave you with today.
Think about His love, think about His goodness
Think about His Grace that’s brought us through
For as high as the heavens above
So great is the measure of our Father’s love
Great is the measure of our Father’s love
