In This  Is Love

All  of God’s creation  shows the depths  of His love.     In love,  He has created countless wonders,  beauties,  and useful things for mankind  to sustain him.     The wonders  of the universe  and tiny flowers  are not just happenstance.     They were made for us,  to lead us  to God,  respect Him,  and grow  in love  for Him.

In response,  Psalm 148:5 sings,

Let them praise  the name  of the LORD,
For He commanded  and they were created.

When we think  of God,  we realize Psalm 96:6,

Splendor and majesty  are before Him,
Strength  and beauty are  in His sanctuary.

That’s what leads us  to longingly say  with King David  in Psalm 27:4,

One thing  I have asked  from the LORD,  that I shall seek:
That I may dwell  in the house  of the LORD  all the days  of my life,
To behold  the beauty  of the LORD
And to meditate  in His temple.

The absolute ultimate   of God’s wondrous beauty  and love  is His condescending love  for each  and every one  of us.     We don’t deserve  God’s love,  but He loves us anyway.     That’s a part  of what 1 John 4:10 shows us,

In this  is love,  not that we loved God,  but that He loved us  and sent His Son  to be  the propitiation  for our sins.  

If we are tempted  to feel unloved  for any reason,  we need  to think  on all these things.     These truths should give us  the right perspective  in truth.     Then we can say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for loving us  so beautifully  and sacrificially.”

Love,
Margaret
