YOUR LOVE FILLS THE EARTH!

Playing in the background of our psalm this morning is an old song by Third Day, “Your Love, Oh Lord”.  Both psalm and song fill my soul with the love God has for me and for you who believe and love Him back. 

Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains
Your justice flows like the ocean’s tide

I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of your wings

Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains
Your justice flows like the ocean’s tide

I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of your wings

I will find my strength
In the shadow of your wings

I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of your wings

I will lift my voice
I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King

I will find my strength
I will find my strength
In the shadow of your wings

Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky

Wisdom and Worship, Psalms and Proverbs

Part Eight – Psalm 119:57-64, The Message

Because you have satisfied me, God, I promise
    to do everything you say.
I beg you from the bottom of my heart: smile,
    be gracious to me just as you promised.
When I took a long, careful look at your ways,
    I got my feet back on the trail you blazed.
I was up at once, didn’t drag my feet,
    was quick to follow your orders.
The wicked hemmed me in—there was no way out—
    but not for a minute did I forget your plan for me.
I get up in the middle of the night to thank you;
    your decisions are so right, so true—I can’t wait till morning!
I’m a friend and companion of all who fear you,
    of those committed to living by your rules.
Your love, God, fills the earth!
    Train me to live by your counsel.

TRUTH:  Your love, God, fills the earth!  Train me to live by your counsel.  God is our greatest joy (vv. 61-64). It should be the Christian’s greatest joy to know God, love Him, hear His voice, and obey His will. Praying to Him and praising Him should be more refreshing to us than sleep. Being with His people should satisfy our hearts, and we should see the love and glory of God in all of creation. Whether we are lying on our bed at midnight, meditating on His Word, fellowshipping with God’s people, or taking a walk in God’s glorious creation, we love God, listen to Him, and thank Him.

Proverb 3:3-4, The Message

WISDOM: “Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.”

Abba Father,

Help me to love others like you love me.

In Jesus Name, Amen
