Psalm 91:14-16 (NIV)
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Because he loves me says the Lord, I will rescue him. I find those words to be so tender , to hear the Lord say,” because he loves me, I will rescue him”…..not “because he does great things in my name, I will rescue him” or, “because he’s perfect, I will rescue him. ” No, “because he loves me says the Lord, I will rescue him”….because he loves me….that’s all, end of story.
And I am soooo in love with Him. That kind of overwhelming, satisfying love , when just being around the person is enough; sharing the same space with them just makes your day. And the bible says, I love him because He loved me first. 1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us
I just want to sit in His presence and soak in it. You know I think if we really understood even a fraction of how much we’re loved by God, everything else would just fall into place. I don’t have to be the richest, skinniest, prettiest, most likely to succeed girl in the room. I’m LOVED BY THE MAKER of the UNIVERSE for pete’s sake, and the feeling is mutual.
