Lord, our Lord! How great, how Mighty is Your love in all the earth!

“…Lord, our Lord! How great, how Mighty is Your love in all the earth!...”

I can look back at certain points in my life and see that the sin I was walking in was something I fell into as a direct result of trying to fill the void that only God can fill. Every man has the need to be known, the need to be loved and to love. But when we become impatient and self-focused we tend to meet those very real needs in ways God never intended them to be met. Sex did not meet my needs. The approval of others did not meet my needs. The only things that met my deepest need was the greatness of God’s love for me. In comparison to the greatness of God, all other things we try to use to satisfy our longings pales. There is nothing greater than our God, nothing greater than His forgiveness, nothing greater than His redemption, nothing greater than His love for us.

As you go about your day today, be alert to the things that tempt you to meet your needs in ungodly ways…and trust the Lord to show you the correct response to having those needs met.
Your way, O God, is holy;
What god is great like our God?
Psalm 77:13 NASB
