“May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.” Psalm 33:22
Read this verse over and over. What is the Holy Spirit whispering to you?
As I read this verse “unfailing love” jumps out at me. Our verse is basically a prayer asking for God’s blessings upon all those who hope in Him. But it is deeper than that. It is also a realization of who God is and who we put our hope in.
Through this one verse the Psalmist is recognizing our need for God and putting hope in Him. It is recognizing the love that God has toward us. He is a God of unfailing love, never ending love, mercy and grace. All of this even though our faith and hope are imperfect.
As you go about your day think about God’s love. Think about how His love is shown in your life right now. Then thank Him for that love, for all your blessings.
I am blessed. First God allowed me to have life, then all through this life He has shaped me to be who I am today. Making His love for me clear. I have a wonderful family and friends. Even though I continually screw up God pulls me back with His love and grace. He forgives me and continues to guide me. God is Great.
Even though I have had to endure some storms I can see God in them keeping me from drowning. I don’t always see it in the storm but once through it His presence is obvious. How can we not want to know and love a God like that?
May your day bring you closer to God and may God reveal His love to you as you spend time getting to know Him.
