Psalm 103:11 “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him”

Have you ever seen a thunderhead forming in the distance. Cumulonimbus or thunderheads grow vertically instead of horizontally, forming into dense towers that reach 20,000 feet tall and have been known to go as high as 75,000 feet. Massive, imposing, powerful yet small in comparison to God’s love for you. His love is as high as the heavens are above the earth.

If you are facing a trial today, God’s love is more powerful. If you had a bad day, God’s love is greater. If it looks dark ahead, God’s love is brighter. I love the words of the old hymn, The Love of God.

Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky

God loves you that much. Take that in for a moment. Don’t let it be just another trite saying today. His love endures forever. His love is all knowing. His love is all powerful. His love is ever present. And His love is made perfect in us. Let the truth of God’s love for you fill your heart today. Drink it in. And hold onto it. It’s real. It’s yours.
