Psalm 63:3-4 (NLT)
Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you! I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
Have we truly comprehended that God’s love is without error, reliable, constant and everlasting? Are we able to accept this undeniable fact about God? In this world there are so many things fighting for our attention and affection. We can often get lost in the busyness of life and lose sight of the truths of God’s love for us. In our effort to live a “RIGHT” life, we can get entangled in religious rules and expectation and miss the fulfillment of God’s love in our lives.
God’s love for us is like none other that we will ever experience. When we choose to engage with God’s love, then we will see that is truly better than life itself. We will find ourselves praising God for what seems to be the littlest things in our life, that so many overlook on a daily basis. God’s love is not just for a select people. His love is available to all who is willing to accept it. That is why we should be able to God as long as we live with our hands lifting up. He made His love available to the Gentiles and not just the Jews only.
His love is better than our jobs.
His love is better than our families.
His love is better than our churches.
His love is better than our money.
His love is better than our businesses.
His love is better than our influence.
His love is better than anything that we will ever encounter or experience.
Nothing in this world can compare to the love of God!
