God’s Colossal Love

I am really enjoying the Living Bible translation written by Eugene Peterson.  The adjectives he uses to describe God’s Word visually describe His timeless truths in new ways that speak volumes to my spirit. While reading Psalms 36 this morning, I was once more delightfully reminded of God’s colossal love for us! In verses 5-9, he describes it as follows:

God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic, His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic. Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost; Not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks. How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings,  To eat our fill at the banquet you spread as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water. You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light.

Now I don’t know about you, but when I read that passage the vastness and hugeness of God’s love, once more captures my heart afresh, washing endless waves of security, affection and warmth all over it!  As Romans 8 also reminds us, there is NOTHING that can separate us from His all-encompassing love for us, that is truly higher than the heavens.

What an immeasurable and unending gift we have all received.  And the gift that never quits giving or protecting. Bask with me today in God’s colossal love for you.  Allow His loving Presence to invade every nook and cranny of your emptiness, brokenness and pain.  Oh, how He loves you!
