Sorry this is yesterday's devotional. The one for today will be posted at 5 PM EST.
For your love is as high as the heavens, your faithfulness extends to the clouds. Psalm 57:10 NRSV
When we tell someone we love them, we do mean it. But how deep or high is our love? Would we die for them? Be willing to watch them fail -- knowing it would make the stronger -- without stepping in to "help?" Could we give up everything for their sake without a guarantee that they would recognize our own sacrifice? Can we allow the ones we love complete control over all we have created with our own hands, trusting that they will eventually do their best on our behalf?
That is the kind of love that God has for us.
A love that is completely steadfast. There is nothing we can do to end God's love for us.
A love that is higher, deeper and broader than we can contemplate or imagine. God's love will always go beyond what we think God is capable of in loving us.
A love that we can only emulate without truly coming close.
That is God's love for you and me.
God, thank your for constant and deep love. I am truly in awe. In Jesus' holy name I pray. Amen.
