I don’t consider myself wise, but I think I’m one step closer. I’ve thought a lot about love as Valentine’s Day approached. Then, last night, as I was reading in Psalms, I came across this verse:
“Whoever is wise, let him heed these things
and consider the great love of the LORD.”
Psalm 107:43 (NIV1984)
This psalm is about God’s love for Israel and how they failed Him many times—and how he continued to love, rescue, and deliver them. I can relate. I often fail, and that’s why this psalm ministered such a balm to my spirit. It reminded me that God’s love for me is unfailing—despite my shortcomings, faults, and failures.
A few verses down, I read this:
“For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.”
Psalm 108:4 (NIV1984)
I began to really reflect on how great His love is, greater than I can understand. The depth of His love really stands out in the following verses:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16 (NIV1984)
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8 (NIV1984)
If you’ve made it this far into this post, you’ve considered His great love too. That makes you wise!
What do you consider the most amazing thing about God’s love?
