Drenched in His Love - Bonita Y. McCoy

Oh, my Word!!
Have you read Psalm 33 recently?

If not, grab your Bible and go outside in the sunshine and cool breeze, and read it.

“The unfathomable cosmos came into being at the word of the Eternal’s imagination, a solitary voice in endless darkness. The breath of His mouth whispered the sea of stars into existence.”

Doesn’t that give you chills?

To breathe in the air He created. To feel the sun’s warmth and the caress of the wind and know that He made them all.

“Let all people stand in awe of the Eternal; let every man, woman, and child live in wonder of Him. For He spoke, and all things came into being. A single command from His lips and all creation obeyed and stood its ground.”

I want to live in awe of God. I want to remember every day that He is big, but He loves us who are small. I want to be surprised by His creation, and I want it to move me. I never want to forget how awesome our God is.

“The Eternal peers down from heaven and watches all of humanity; He observes every soul from His divine residence. He has formed every human heart, breathing life into every human spirit; He knows the deeds of each person, inside and out.”

God knows me. God knows you. He formed us and gave us life. He knows us inside and out. The marvel of it. He knows every hair on our head though the number changes daily.

“Our hearts erupt with joy in Him because we trust His holy name. O Eternal, drench us with Your endless love, even now as we wait for you.”

To be drenched, soaked to the bone in His love like a torrential down pour. Not so we alone can experience it, but so we can pour it out on others as well. “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” (NIV 1 John 4:7).

This Psalm starts with the cosmos and ends with the love God has for each one of us. Doesn’t that shake your soul? The one who formed the stars loves you!

Today, let’s rejoice in God’s love and be swept up in the wonder of who He is.
