Your faithfulness stretches to the sky

In my Bible reading, I came across Psalm 36: 5-7.

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
    

your faithfulness to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,

your justice like the great deep.

You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.

How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!

People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

I recognized in this Psalm the lyrics to a worship song I love.

Your love, oh Lord reaches to the heavens

And Your faithfulness stretches to the sky

And Your righteousness is like the mighty mountain

Yeah

And Your justice flows like the ocean’s tide

Chorus 1:

And I will lift my voice to worship You my King

And I will find my strength in the shadow of Your wings

Repeat All

Chorus 2:

And I will lift my voice to worship You my King (I will lift my voice to worship You my King)

And I will find my strength in the shadow of Your wings (And I will find my strength in the shadow of Your wings)

Repeat Chorus

Your love, oh Lord reaches to the heavens

Your faithfulness stretches to the sky

The whole concept of God’s characteristics being bigger than our material world blows my mind.  I can’t imagine something so big.  But, it must be good.

With the weather getting nicer, I find myself outdoors more often spending time in God’s creation.  I can’t help but think about how amazing this world is.  I can’t help but know there must be someone behind all of it.  That it can’t be a big accident.  And that if someone is so powerful to make such a beautiful Earth, how much bigger and more powerful is that someone.

It makes me grateful that God is on my side.  That He loves me.  That He provides my strength and security.

He has to… Because He made all of this.  And sustains it.  Despite all that we have done and everything else He could be doing.
