9th -10th January
“For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens. May Your glory shine over all the earth.”
It is a great joy to know that our God is faithful. He keeps His promises and never lets us down. He is there when we need Him, forgives when we don’t deserve it and freely showers us with His grace. It is no wonder David used such descriptive words to describe God’s faithfulness. ‘Your love is as high as the heavens’ and ‘Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds‘. David’s words are so expressive and so heart-felt. It’s almost like when children say, ‘I love you to the moon and back’. There is no measure of that love but you know that when it is said, it comes from a heart completely given over to love.
It is with that same love that David loved God. He truly knew first hand of God’s faithfulness. In fact this psalm was written when God delivered David from Saul’s persecution. We must take time to look upon our lives and reflect on the victories won through Christ, so that we may remind ourselves of God’s faithfulness and unfailing love towards us. His love truly is unmeasurable and His faithfulness is un-ending. May God’s glory shine in us and through us as we celebrate His goodness towards us.
