Your Love is a Treasure
"How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings."
Psalm 36:7

"They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights."
Psalm 36:8
Dove

Verse 7: "How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings."

Speaking of the Lord's "unfailing love" the Psalmist says: Nothing can compare with its worth!

Psalm 147:11: "The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love" (NIV).

Eugene Peterson paraphrases verse 7: "How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings."

Don Wyrtzen says: "After describing God's unsearchable, inexhaustible, and unfathomable love, David becomes more intimate. He tells of the pricelessness of God's unfailing love and affirms that all men, whatever their station in life, can find security, 'refuge in the shadow of your wings'...What cause for rejoicing and singing today!"

I haven't even finished the devotion yet and I'm starting to sing "Under His wings I am safely abiding, Tho the night deepens and tempests are wild; Still I can trust Him, I know He will keep me, He has redeemed me and I am His child. Under His wings, under His wings, Who from His love can sever? Under His wings my soul shall abide, Safely abide forever."

Verse 8: "They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights."

In verse 7 we are under His wings. In verse 8 we are at His table.

Psalm 23:5: "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows" (NIV).

Nancy Spiegelberg confesses: "Lord I crawled across the barrenness to you with my empty cup uncertain in asking any small drop of refreshment. If only I had known you better I'd have come running with a bucket."

Thomas A. Kempis said: "A pure, honest, and stable spirit is not distracted by a lot of activity. He does everything to honor God and is at rest within himself. He seeks to be free from all selfishness".

Now as we conclude verse 8 I find myself singing "I'm Drinking From My Saucer 'Cause My Cup is Overflowed."

Seriously let us come to worship and sing that wonderful hymn "The Love of God":
The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell.
The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled, And pardoned from his sin.

When hoary time shall pass away, And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray, On rocks and hills and mountains call,
God's love so sure, shall still endure, All measure-less and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam's race The saints' and angels' song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made.
Were ev'ry stalk on earth a quill, And ev'ry man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, Tho' stretched from sky to sky.

Refrain
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measure-less and strong!
It shall forevermore endure The saints' and angels' song.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
