Your Love Oh Lord
« on: October 10, 2015, 10:10:11 PM »
I have probably posted this song before, but the psalm has been on my mind today so thought would post up.

Psalm 36

Human Wickedness and Divine Goodness
To the leader. Of David, the servant of the LORD.

1 Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in their hearts; there is no fear of God before their eyes.
 2 For they flatter themselves in their own eyes that their iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
 3 The words of their mouths are mischief and deceit; they have ceased to act wisely and do good.
 4 They plot mischief while on their beds; they are set on a way that is not good; they do not reject evil.

 5 Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
 6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O LORD.

 7 How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
 8 They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
 9 For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.

 10 O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart!
 11 Do not let the foot of the arrogant tread on me, or the hand of the wicked drive me away.
 12 There the evildoers lie prostrate; they are thrust down, unable to rise
.


Those 12 lines are packed with so much.

God's love and attributes, or some of, described as:

Steadfast...
Faithfulness...
Righteousness...
Judgements are deep
(not shallow like man's)...
Precious...
Refuge...
Shelter
(in the shadow of your wings) shadow alone giving shelter let alone the wings themselves...
Nourishment...feeding on the abundance of Your house AND drinking from river of delights (interesting concept of OT saint having that approach to the banqueting table to know what that is)
Life giver...knowing that God gives life, sustains...
Light giver...
Salvation to the upright of heart...

I like the old song that goes something like:- It?s so high you can?t get over it,
                                                                  So low you can?t get under it,
                                                                  So wide you can?t get round it,
                                                                  Oh, wonderful love!
