Can you imagine love that fills up the world, the moon, the sun, the whole solar system, and all the universe? Can you imagine anything that big? It’s mind-boggling. How could we possible get our head around anything that huge? It’s seriously beyond our understanding.
When God loves, He loves with God-size love. It’s pure, without the conditions and history that we throw into it. It’s love that sees right through our arrogance and selfishness into our very needy heart. Despite rejection, ignorance, anger, and self-righteousness, He loves us completely.
The Lord appeared of old to me, saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love. Therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you. (Jer 31:3)
The Lord your God in your midst, the Might One, will save. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing. (Zeph 3:17)
Open your heart to that love and breathe it in. It’s health and life to your bones, joy and refreshment to your spirit. It is the essence of God that pulses through all creation. He made it all so that we could be with Him. His love is everything that we need.
