The Lord loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
The earth is full of his unfailing love because he is everywhere!
Colossians 1:16-17 confirms:
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
Love is invisible and so is gravity, and he created both of them too. His unfailing love is everywhere just like his unfailing gravity. According to Greek scholar A.T. Robertson, ‘all things were created’ has the idea of "stand created" or "remain created." Robertson adds: "The permanence of the universe rests, then, on Christ far more than on gravity. It is a Christ-centric universe.” (David Guzik)
He didn’t just create everything and leave it alone; he continually chooses to sustain ALL things – even gravity. All the Laws of Nature work because he lets them. AND he chooses to lavish the whole world with his love faithfully by making the way for EVERYONE to be made right with him forever and have eternal life available to everyone still.
(See Romans 3:22)
And he goes beyond that for all who love and trust him. He continually lavishes us with good things & fills the lives of those who love and trust him with his unfailing love every day!
The love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear him.
Thank you for your unfailing love. Thank you for continuing to sustain all things for us. Thank you for the reminder that all creation STILL hinges on you. You have never left us, and you allow us to experience your love (and gravity) every single day. Thank you! I love you so much and pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
