Love That’s Enough

I was reading in Psalm 57 today and was greatly encouraged.  It’s no secret that life is difficult.  There are joys to be experienced, but also monotony, challenges  and difficulty.  We try to do everything we can to avoid these things, but inevitably, they find us.   But in light of these things,  I’m thankful that God Himself walked this earth as a man (sinless) and can share in the pains and the joys of His own creation.

So when I read a Psalm (like Ps 57), I take great comfort in knowing that God can relate to our difficulties and our frustrations and our questions –  He can  “sympathize with our weaknesses” (Heb 4:15-16).   Thankfully, He does not reject our prayers and He does not withhold His love from us (Ps. 66:20).

Something that I’ve been reminded of lately is that God doesn’t work on our timetable.  He works from the perspective of eternity which means He’s not in a hurry.  His answers may not come when I went them to, but they will come.  Somethings may not be resolved, even in this lifetime, but they will be resolved.

I guess the point of this is simply to remind us that God’s love is greater than we understand and it is more than sufficient for our greatest needs.  And for that I’m grateful.  I hope you have a great Memorial Day.
