Psalm 36:5-7 (NKJV) 5 Your mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. 6 Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O Lord, You preserve man and beast. 7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
The glorious mercy of God is of the most exalted nature, higher than we can conceive. The unchanging faithfulness of God is limitless, it is great, vast, incomparable. God is true to His word. He always remembers, always fulfills, always sure of and always keeps His word. God has adhered to every covenant, every promise, every prophecy, and every engagement. For “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19 NKJV). This is why every believer can say “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23 NKJV). God’s righteousness is stable, steadfast, immovable and thoroughly dependable. God will always do what is right. God’s righteousness was perfectly manifested at the Cross where Jesus Christ His Son paid the penalty of our sins. God’s righteousness demanded that sin be punished, and Jesus paid it all. All to Him we owe. The perfect righteousness of God is witnessed in the substitutional sacrifice of the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. God’s judgments are justified, without error, and final. Yet, God is rich in mercy, love, grace, faithfulness, power and goodness. For God’s wisdom is infinite, unsearchable, incomparable, and invincible. God is omniscient. And all of creation, man and beast, is persevered by the providence of God. God is intimately aware of the needs of His creation and He cares for them. There is nothing more precious than the lovingkindness of God. God’s love never fails, it never gives up, and it never runs out. His love is everlasting, sovereign, infinite, causeless and unchanging. Nothing can ever separate a true child of God from God’s love. God’s love surpasses all understanding. Just as it is written in a song, “Amazing love, how can it be? That You, my King, would die for me – Amazing love I know it’s true. Its my joy to honor You in all I do, I honor You.” It is all that we can do, and it is the best we can do. Because our finite minds cannot fully grasp the Divine love of God. God is merciful. God is faithful. God is righteous. God is just. God is love. And therefore, all who believes by faith in His Son Jesus Christ can find refuge under the shadow of His wings. All of God’s children can find rest, refreshment and safety in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
