The earth is filled with Your love, Lord; teach me Your decrees. – (Psalm 119:64, NIV)
Your love, God, fills the earth! Train me to live by Your counsel. – (Psalm 119:64, MSG)
Give me more revelation of Your ways, for I see Your love and tender care everywhere. – (Psalm 119:64, TPT)
This morning, I had the joy of getting out to get some exercise before the sun was up. Driving to meet up with my running buddy, I was in awe of the enormous full moon and planets that were in plain view. Everywhere I look, there is evidence of God’s love and care. Because of the very same love that made the moon and hung the stars in the sky, I long to live according to His good and perfect will. The more I recognize His love, the greater my desire is to live likewise. In order to do so, I must invest time and energy into learning and growing in His love. The more I observe His love in action, the more compelled I am to do the same. May we ever seek the Lord and His ways, so that we may love one another as He first loved us.
The whole earth is filled,
With God’s fingerprints;
His love, He imprints.
Lord, help me to see,
To learn and to grow;
To love as You love,
So Your heart is shown.
Help me seek counsel,
For in You, I find;
How I’m meant to love,
And how to be kind.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that the whole earth is filled with Your love, if only we open our eyes to see it. Thank You that You lovingly and willingly teach us to live and love according to Your will as we seek You. Forgive us for the times that we have been blind to Your good, or have chosen to wander on our own. Teach us to trust You and follow Your leading to live and love well. Show us how to love those around us as You do. Grant us Your eyes to see and Your heart to love. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we become acutely aware of Your love all around us, and learn to walk in Your ways. Amen.

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law. – Psalm 119:18
