It's normal to be awestruck by how good God is
From The Overflowing Life: A 14-Day Devotional
How wild is it that we get to call God “ours”? He is our God. Psalm 118:28 says, “God, You are my God, and I will give you thanks.”
None of us deserve to be loved the way God loves us. He brings us near and blesses us. He adopts us into His family and gives us access we didn’t earn.
Like a good dad, God is never far from us. When sin separated us, He did not leave us to fend for ourselves. God hears our prayers and answers us, often in ways we wouldn’t expect.
The same God who created mountains, designed galaxies, and set waves into motion cares deeply for each of us. And if that seems crazy to you, you’re not alone. The whole earth marvels at God’s extravagance. Wherever He goes, goodness overflows.
“You care for the land and water it;
you enrich it abundantly…
You crown the year with your bounty,
and your carts overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the wilderness overflow;
the hills are clothed with gladness” (Psalm 65:9-12).
All along, our God redeems, blesses, and multiplies. He who calms the chaos of nations can steady the turmoil we feel in our hearts (Psalm 65:7).
To see God as He really is — all-powerful and all-knowing, filled with steadfast love and mercy, overflowing in goodness and generosity — fills us with the same awe as the psalmist. It compels us to join with all creation as they shout for joy and sing (Psalm 65:13).
Your love overflows to us. Thank you, God!
