Ps 36:5-9


“Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast. How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.”

As we were praying this morning, my wife was praising God for His love; a love greater that we can know or comprehend. As I thought about that I was reminded of this Psalm. Truly, God's love is both priceless and unfailing. There is no price that any man could ever bring to earn God's favor or to deserve His love, and still it never falters. And the benefits of that great love are not based on status or heritage. God has provided a place of safety for the low and the high, for the great and small, for those whose value is easily discerned and for those whose worth is seen only by God Himself. He preserves and provides for both. Our loving Father knows our needs and He meets them with abundance; we need a drink and God provides a river!

Finally, in the same way that life itself flows from our gracious Father, so does wisdom and understanding. We would be in the dark about God and His great love if He did not provide illumination.

Wherever you are, whatever your situation today, know this: YOU ARE LOVED!
