We sang it as children, “He’s got the whole world in his hands …” But have you ever thought of it as a love song?
“The earth is the Lord‘s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 24:1, KJV1
When I think about who God is, it just blows my mind that He loves me. How about you? When life has gotten far too complicated, it helps to focus on the One in my life who never changes. Here’s a tip: the Navigators website has a daily meditation on the attributes of God. For example, did you know that:
- God is the I AM WHO I AM. He is completely independent. He doesn’t need us. Not one bit.
- God is Holy. He is set apart, unique.
- God is the One Who Sanctifies. He cleanses us, makes us holy so we can be in His presence. (It’s more than I can understand, just like the old Scottish saying, “It’s beyond my ken.”)
One more thing that’s beyond my thought process: He loves us more than we can imagine.
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16, TLB1
If you think you don’t have someone in your life this February, 14th, just remember: people may fail us, but God never will.
