I am thankful, so thankful, that God runs after me; that he pursues me with his love! I know only a small miniscule amount of his immense love for me. If I fully could understand and comprehend it, it would be too great for me to stand. I think one of the more noticeable things that God is teaching me, is just how he loves me. Recently I read â€œWhen Heaven Weepsâ€, and it spoke to me more than I could have possibly imagined about how great His love really is. It has been a week since I finished the book now, and I am still trying to comprehend everything that was conveyed in the book. Along with that, I have heard sermons on the same subject. This isnâ€™t all I have been learning, though.
Are you amazed? Am I amazed, that was the question on Easter. Are you amazed? I am amazed at Godâ€™s greatness, at his creation, at his majestic show of beauty. I look at his beautiful creation and I just give God thanks and praise. He shows his holiness through His creation. It is greater than I can even comprehend.
Iâ€™ve fallen in love with Psalm 19, which is broken up into three specific parts. My Bibleâ€™s notes say the following (which sums it up better than I can put it):
As God reveals himself through nature (19:1-6), we learn about his power and our finiteness. As God reveals himself through Scripture (19:7-11), we learn about his holiness and our sinfulness. As God reveals himself through daily experiences (19:12-14), we learn about his gracious forgiveness that frees us from guilt. (Life Application Study Bible NLT, Psalm 19 note)
Iâ€™ve committed myself to memorizing Psalm 19. The last verse (19:14) is my prayer, â€œMay the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart / be pleasing to you, Oh Lord my rock and my redeemerâ€. Or, as the Amplified says: â€œmy firm, impenetrable rock and my redeemerâ€. So to borrow from Sunday, are you amazed?
