GOD’S KINDNESS AND FAITHFULNESS
Your loving-kindness and graciousness, O Lord, extend to the skies, Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; o Lord, You preserve man and beast. – Psalm 36:5-6
God’s loving-kindness, mercy and grace are actually His unfailing love and are as vast as the heavens. Not even the sky set the limit for God’s faithfulness. Nothing can compare to God’s character. His righteousness is as high and stable as the great mountains are. All God’s judgments are perfect, right and just and they are so profound that David has compared them with the deepest sea, or the great deep.
Everything that God does is perfect and there is nothing to add to it or subtract from what He does. As God has such love, grace and mercy for us, we should “know that we know” that He is more than able to take the best care of us. Once we understand this truth, as long as we abide in Him and He abides in us, we can live care and worry free.
Dear Father God, how amazing Your love and tender mercy is for me. Please keep me surrounded with Your love and help me to never doubt it. I can never need more love or mercy that what You already prepared for me! Your judgments are so deep and perfect, that I can trust them fully, no matter what. I can be sure that You have all that is best for me, because there is no measure for Your righteousness and You are the truth and justice itself! Glory and honor to Your holy Name. Amen
