It’s Personal

New Day, November 10, 2014
“Give thanks to the LORD…to him who by understanding made the heavens…to him who made the great lights…the sun to rule over the day…the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever…” Psalm 136:1, 5-9
With some remorse and for brevity, I omitted the central idea of the song-poem Psalm 136–repeated with every verse: God’s steadfast love endures forever.

God’s steadfast love (“hesed”) is multifaceted. One stunning reality hesed expresses is God’s unceasing loyalty to those who love Him. Looking into the sky today, I will dwell on this: God has expressed and pledged His devotion to me all the days of my life. How great is Zephaniah 3:17: “The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiety you by his love.”

This morning’s showcase of wonders in the sky “declares” a small part of the person God is (Ps 19:1). But oh, what a bright shining it is!
In Jesus, this love is ultimately, savingly expressed in His life and cross (2 Corinthians 1:20). It is personal.

Enjoy glimpses of God’s glory today.
