God loves you.
After hearing that so many times it begins to lose its meaning. It’s easy to hear it with your ears and not with your heart. But these past few months I’ve been realizing how incredible that statement really is.
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?
Yet you made them only a little lower than God
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,
putting all things under their authority—
the flocks and the herds
and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
and everything that swims the ocean currents.
O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
We can study and learn about our beautiful earth and the universe as far as we can reach but we will never find the end.
To think that we cannot possibly reach the ends of this universe we live in.
To think that there is a Creator so much bigger than all of that.
To think that He spoke and creation grew into existence.
To think that we are so small, most of our greatest ambitions is to see just this planet!
To think that we as mere humans think we can understand God.
To think that as mere humans we are wiser than Him and do what we think is best.
To think that no matter what we do to ignore God or how we hurt Him, God loves us.
So why do I do those things I know are no good for me? Why ignore God and settle for second best in my life? How can I not trust God with my life? Why do I think I can possibly be good enough for Him? And yet through His grace he made us good enough.
This is God’s daily reminder to you and I. His love is enough for you. You don’t have to change to receive it. You already have it no. matter. what.
As you begin each day, remember that truth that is bound with no reasons.
God LOVES you just because.
