5 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.
Your Meditational thought for today is from Psalm 36. In this song David seeks to come to grips with the rebelliousness of mankind and the fact that God is so merciful. David says that the rebellious do not have a fear of Almighty God. Their heart are hardened as to His awesome nature, therefore they are able to act out without any fear. However, David is amazed at the mercy God extends unto mankind. God’s mercy is His steadfast love or to put it another way, His Loyal Love. In God’s mercy, He withholds from us what we deserve. We are the beneficiaries of God’s great mercy.
We have all at one time been rebellious, and God’s mercy kept us. We must thank Him for His extreme goodness in our lives. Verses 5-6 shows that He gives His mercy comes down from Heaven to the universe and then extends to the clouds and from the clouds to the mountains and even into the rest depths of the sea. God’s mercy fills the earth. It is absolutely necessary for us to express our thanks to Him for extending unto us His Loyal Love. Not only is God’s grace amazing, His mercy is also truly amazing.
God bless you today.
