To the Heavens


Psalm 36:5 says, “Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies” (NIV).


This verse isn’t talking about about something measurable, like the length of a kite string. It’s not as if you could calculate the distance from here to the heavens, and once it had stretched that far, God’s love would run out.

⠀⠀

No, this is figurative language that paints a picture of the immeasurable love and faithfulness of God.

⠀⠀

It’s the kind of faithfulness that God displays towards me on my worst days—on the days when I screw up, when I choose selfishness over service, obstinacy over obedience, and loathing over love.

⠀⠀

It’s this kind of faithfulness that compels the God and King of the universe—the supreme creator who holds limitless power in his hands—to keep on loving a broken, messed up troublemaker like me, despite the offenc


es I’ve committed against Him.

⠀⠀

God shows his faithfulness to me in this way over and over, year after year.

⠀⠀

He remains devoted to me, in spite of me.

⠀⠀

He refuses to give up on me when I am ready to give up on myself.

⠀⠀

He chooses not to hold my past sins against me, but He looks at me as a new creation.

⠀⠀

He loves me through my mess…

⠀⠀

And He always will.

⠀⠀

How have you seen God’s faithfulness on display in your life this year?
