The earth is filled with Your love, Lord; teach me Your decrees. – (Psalm 119:64, NIV)
Lord, Your faithful love fills the earth. Teach me Your laws. – (Psalm 119:64, ERV)
Your love, God, fills the earth! Train me to live by Your counsel. – (Psalm 119:64, MSG)
Though there are many places and spaces where it feels as though there is no love to be found, it takes but a moment to slow down and truly look and see all the good that God has placed around us. It is knowing the goodness of His love that compels me to want to learn and grow each day to more clearly reflect His heart to the world. We all are a work in progress, yet as we pursue Him and recognize the love that He has for us all, one cannot help but to desire to do likewise. May we ever seek the Lord to recognize the goodness of His love, and seek after Him to show us how to live according to His counsel.
The love of the Lord,
Is beyond compare;
His goodness and grace,
Are found ev’rywhere.
Each time we seek Him,
The Lord will be found;
Present, He helps us,
His kindness is sound.
It is God’s great love,
That leads us to seek;
To walk in His ways,
Follow His decrees.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your love is evident everywhere. Thank You that it is Your kindness that compels us to walk in Your way and do Your will. Forgive us for the times that we have neglected to love or avoided the things that You were calling us to do. Teach us to trust You and to listen to Your leading so that we may truly walk in the light of Your love. Show us how to love those around us as You do. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we embrace the grace that You give and recognize the overwhelming love all around us that leads us to desire to do likewise. Amen.
