“Earth, tremble in the presence of the Lord, in the presence of the God of Jacob.” (Psalm 114:7 GW)
God makes you tremble.
When you begin to grasp the depth of God’s love for you genuinely, trembling occurs. However, most people don’t understand God’s passion for them. They equate God’s love for them with their circumstances. If life is good, God is good. If life is bad, God is bad. That’s not how God works. God loves wholly and completely all of the time.
God is in the business of redemption. Whatever ache you have, He’s working to heal it. Over time, in His way, all things become new again, including you. But first, we have to accept in our soul; God does love us.
God operates from love.
We don’t have to question God’s motive; it’s love. He sent Jesus to help us understand His love for us. We can’t grasp His love in our humanness, but through Jesus, we begin to see. Jesus became human so that we can relate to Him. He felt what we feel. Every temptation we’ve faced, Jesus faced first. When Jesus got on the cross, He did so willingly. Why? Because He truly understood the depth of God’s love for Him and us.
Think of someone in your life you know who loves you without a shadow of a doubt. God loves you more than they do. Think of someone you love more than anyone else. God loves them more than you do. He parts seas, moves mountains, and destroys giants. God makes the earth and its inhabitants tremble.
Lord, how thankful we are You love us. Forgive us that we struggle to understand how much you care for us. Open our eyes and ears today to what You are doing in our lives. Let our hearts receive Your love, filling them to overflowing. As we begin to realize the extent, You love us, help us share that love with the world. Today, as we go about our business, let us feel Your love, then help us share it with everyone we meet. IJNIP. Amen
