Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Psalm 103:11, which says,
“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him….”
It is truly unfathomable to think of the greatness of the LORD’s love toward His own. To think that His loyalty never runs out toward His own fallible creatures, is overwhelmingly impressive. David uses the figure of the distance that separates the lofty expanse of the heavens above the earth, in order to illustrate the LORD’s awe-inspiring love for His people who stand in awe of Him.
When I think of my foolishness, and my lack of diligence from time to time, and my attitude shifts that occur, and my frailties, I am truly blown away at the unfailing kindness the LORD extends to not only me, but to all that fear and love Him. Try to wrap your mind around that. As Paul said to the church at Rome,
“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of god! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out.”
Have a wonderful day.
