Psalms 103:11 “More Than The World!”
"For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him."
God loves you more than the whole world! In fact, he loves you higher than the heavens!! So why in the world would we dare to fear God and how He may judge us? If someone loves you more than the world, they wish the very best for you, and they forgive you whenever you mess up, no matter how bad the mess. That sounds like a recipe for feeling like you can do anything knowing God will love you and have your back regardless, as long as you recognize Him as your true Father, Savior and Friend.
Now pay attention, and realize God is standing right beside you all day every day. You can literally feel Him in your heart and soul if you just pay attention. You can’t see Him, but then you can’t see oxygen in the air either. However, you can feel both as sure as you’re breathing! Pay attention and notice how God is working to love you, to support you and to help you get your stuff together. You think your parents love you? Ha, we can’t possibly love you as much as the Creator of the world!
Sit still, tell God your gratitude, your dreams, your concerns and your needs for a few minutes. Then, be quiet and feel His presence. It may sound weird, but then godliness in this world, by definition, is weird! If you’ll try this every day for a few minutes, you’ll begin to feel God in your heart and in your soul. Before you know it, you’ll see tangible effects of God working on you and how everything God does works for your good! Every challenge is working to help you grow, and every blessing is a test to see if you’ll be a good steward.
God loves you, and that’s an incredibly awesome “Aha” when you finally “get it!” Tell Him thank you right now!!!
