Here is a passage of scripture the Lord put on my heart, which I shared with our small group this evening…

“Your mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens;
         Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
 6 Your righteousness is like the great mountains;
         Your judgments are a great deep;
         O LORD, You preserve man and beast. 
 7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
         Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
 8 They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house,
         And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
 9 For with You is the fountain of life;
         In Your light we see light. 
 10 Oh, continue Your lovingkindness to those who know You,
         And Your righteousness to the upright in heart.” (Psalm 36: 5 – 10 NKJV)

Phrases that jumped out at me were:

In v 5 – God’s mercy and faithfulness – He does not give us what we deserve (which is judgment). Rather, He is faithful towards us!

In v 6 – His righteousness and judgments – God does the right thing all the time in every situation, in every way. He always makes the best decisions (judgments).

In v 7 – His lovingkindness – His loyal love for us is very special!

In v 8 – Abundantly satisfied, River of His Pleasures – God satisfies us with His goodness and grace!

In v 9 – Fountain of Life – Springs in God are life giving to us!
