If This Doesn’t Get You, What Does?

I love today’s reading (Psalm 147) because you read all these incredible things about the power of God, that He created stars and clouds and makes it rain and hail, but there’s a selfish, insecure part of each of us that hears that and asks, “Okay, but what about me?”

And then you read, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” It’s like God is so big He’s dealing with the universe, yet so caring He knows exactly what I’m dealing with. So powerful He can put the world together, and so compassionate He put back together my broken life.

And what gets God excited? What does He delight in? His handiwork in the Himalayas? The beauty He created with the aurora borealis? No, it’s when I put my hope in His unfailing love.

Seriously people, this is mind-bendingly amazing stuff.
