“Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.” -Psalm 36:5
I love when scripture compares things to nature or the earth, because for the most part, I can picture those things in my mind.
When I read the verse that says His love reaches to the heavens, I picture outer space. Beyond the beyond — stars, and galaxies, and the unknown. How magnificently vast that kind of love is. What a beautiful reminder that if His love reaches the heavens, it most certainly can reach every last inch of my heart. Even the hardened, hidden away, and broken parts of my heart. 💕
Where it says His faithfulness reaches to the skies, I picture crisp blue skies with billowing white clouds - the kind that make you feel small, and a little bit uncertain whether or not it might rain later. The visual picture of the sky reminds me that God is faithful in all ways, in all skies — clear, stormy, hazy, sunny — His faithfulness reaches them all. It covers all my days.
Today, I encourage you to find a few moments to slow down and look up at both the stars and the sky, vast and bright, and dwell on His love and faithfulness.
