5 Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep.
You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
7 How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
I think we’ve all heard the saying, “I love you to the moon and back.”
Sometimes we feel that much love and more for our loved ones!
But God’s love reaches the heavens and His faithfulness to the skies.
We can say we love others to the moon, and back, but are we as faithful as that?
Only God’s love is truly faithful. We try, oh yes, we try, but our love lets people down somewhere along the way.
The only truly faithful love is God’s and we must try our best to emulate His love, but oh, how often we fail.
Thankfully, when all others let us down, we can still rely on God.
Perhaps you have had people do nothing but let you down.
Maybe they have been unfaithful, unkind, or unloving.
Perhaps the most important people in your life let you down big time.
How do you deal with that?
Do you go to God and ask Him for what you need?
God cares about our needs, and He will mend a shattered heart if we ask.
As we turn to God and ask Him to mend us with His love, surprising things happen.
But we must stay on the path of obedience to see this come about.
God’s love is unfailing, and we can and should take refuge in it.
Perhaps you have lost the one dearest to your heart on earth.
You grieve that loss, and you are trying hard to pick up the pieces of your shattered life.
God’s love is enough. He says so in His word.
We must keep turning to Him to be filled again and again.
God also allows us to be loved by others during our earthly journey.
Sometimes that love is fulfilling, and other times it lets you down.
Only God’s love is perfect.
God’s love is priceless.
Let us each one take refuge in the shelter of His wings.
His love surrounds us. It reaches to the heavens, to the highest mountains and beyond.
Won’t you reach out for that love today?
When those we love fail us, help us remember You love us with your perfect love.
As we grieve, losing loved ones near to our hearts, fill us with your endless love.
Help us rely on and take refuge in your perfect love.
In Jesus’ name.
