Great is His Love and Faithfulness

 

Psalm 57:10 
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies
 
Great is His Love and Faithfulness
 
Observations: The Psalmist praises God for his love and faithfulness. In fact, God’s love and faithfulness are greater than anything imaginable, they fill the earth, reaching to the skies. And once again, it’s interesting that the Psalmist praises God in the midst of difficult circumstances, of being pursued by his enemies (v3), and surrounded by spears and swords (v4). However, they have fallen into the pit they dug for him (v6). God proves his love and faithfulness by rescuing his people from their enemies.

 
Application: Do you know the great love and faithfulness of God in your life? It’s very easy to overlook God’s activity in our lives, and how he has preserved us from harm, and how he has richly blessed us. However, the greatest display of God’s love and faithfulness is Jesus Christ. God was faithful to his promises to send a Redeemer, the Christ. And Jesus proves just how great God’s love for his people is as he dies for our sins on the cross. Every time we celebrate the Lord’s Supper we remember the greatness of God’s love and faithfulness. Like the Psalmist we can sing ‘Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. (v5,11)’
 
Prayer: O Faithful and Loving Father, You did not let me fall into the pit that Satan had dug for me, instead, he has fallen and I have been rescued from the consequences of my sin. And even though he still entices me and I often stumble, You are faithful and You will not let me fall. In fact, You have exalted me, You have lifted me up, because of Your great love. And so I will exalt Your name, and seek to bring You glory, that all the world may know of Your greatness and love in Christ Jesus my Lord. In His name I pray. Amen
