Limitless Love

April 23, 2014

Psalm 36:5 AMP
5 Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds.

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

Psalm 36_5
Image from 365 Promises

You are loved with the limitless love of the Lord. An everlasting love that reaches to the heavens!

Jeremiah 31:3 AMP
3 … Yes, I[the Lord] have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you.

Cling to Me

July 3, 2011

Isaiah 27:2-5 (The Message)

“At that same time{in that day},
… a fine vineyard will appear. {a vineyard of red wine}
… There’s something to sing about!
I, God, tend it.
… I keep it well-watered.
I keep careful watch over it
… so that no one can damage it.
I’m not angry. I care.
… Even if it gives me thistles and thornbushes,
I’ll just pull them out
… and burn them up.
Let that vine cling to me for safety,
… let it find a good and whole life with me,
… let it hold on for a good and whole life.”

Come to Me
Know my unfailing love
I have called you by name
My love is everlasting
Be drawn to Me
-Jer 31:3
Cling to Me, cling to me like a vine
Like the true vine clings to the Father
-Jn 15:1
I will keep you safe
My love is eternal
Forever I am yours and
You are mine.
-Isa 43:1

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, His mercies never
come to an end. –Lam 3:22 NRSV

Word Study

From NetBible Isa 27:5

  • cling[02388] = to fasten upon, bind, cleave, take hold
  • safety[04581] = a place of protection, refuge, stronghold (to prevail)
  • good and whole life[07965] = completeness, soundness, welfare, peace
    • from [07999] = to be in a covenant of peace

From NetBible Isa 27:3

  • keep[05341] = to guard with fidelity, preserve

From NetBible Jn 15:1
I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

  • vinedresser[1092] = husbandman
  • The imagery of the vine underscores the importance of fruitfulness in the Christian life and the truth that this results not from human achievement, but from one’s position in Christ. … To some degree the figure is similar to the head-body metaphor used by Paul, with Christ as head and believers as members of the body. Both metaphors bring out the vital and necessary connection which exists between Christ and believers.

Everlasting King Eternal

March 22, 2011

From everlasting to everlasting You are God -Ps 90:1-2
You reign King eternal above all -1 Tim 1:17
You are my strong tower
My strong tower I run into and am safe. -Prov 18:10

From everlasting to everlasting I am loved
Continually I am drawn in mercy -Jer 31:3
By my everlasting God.

No tongue can bid me to depart -Isa 54:17
For I am hid in Christ my Savior -Col 3:1-3
My King eternal
My everlasting God.

Question: Why run?

Draw me after you and let us run together! The king has brought me into his chambers.” “We will rejoice in you and be glad; We will extol your love more than wine. Rightly do they love you.” -Song 1:4

My soul follows hard after You; Your right hand upholds me. -Ps 63:8

But without faith it is impossible to please Him , for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. -Heb 11:6

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. -Ps 9:10

Those with faith know His name and trust Him –> so they run after, follow hard after, diligently seek Him because they love Him.

Word Study

From NetBible Ps 90:1, Ps 71:3

  • dwelling place[04583] = habitation, refuge,
    a place to be covered, concealed & safe

From From NetBible Prov 18:10

  • *The metaphor of “running” to the Lord refers to a whole-hearted and unwavering trust in God’s protection*safe- Heb “is high” or “is inaccessible.” This military-type expression stresses the effect of the trust – security, being out of danger (see HALOT 1305 s.v. שׂגב). Other scriptures will supply the ways that God actually protects people who trust him.

    safe[07682] = to be set on high, inaccessibly high, out of reach

From NetBible Jer 31:3; Song 1:4

  • Draw is used figuratively of a master gently leading an animal with leather cords (Hos 11:4) and of a military victor leading his captives (Jer 31:3). The point of comparison might be that the woman wants to be the willing captive of the love of her beloved, that is, a willing prisoner of his love.

    draw[04900] = to attract, lead along(and lift out)

From NetBible Psa 63:8

  • follows hard[01692] = pursue to catch or overtake with determination
    to cling, cleave or be joined

From NetBible Heb 11:6

  • diligently seek[1567] = to strive after, to crave

From NetBible Psa 9:10

  • “To know” the Lord’s “name” means to be his follower, recognizing his authority and maintaining loyalty to him. See Ps 91:14, where “knowing” the Lord’s “name” is associated with loving him.

Everlasting God – King of Ages

March 20, 2011

From everlasting to everlasting You are God!
In all generations You are our safe dwelling place,
our Rock of habitation, our Rock of refuge, our Rock eternal.

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were born or You gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. -Ps 90:1-2

Continually You draw us with Your everlasting love and mercy to come and be concealed in the cleft.

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. -Jer 31:3

You are my Rock, my fortress; my strong tower that I run into and am safe.

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe. -Prov 18:10

Be my strong refuge{my rock of habitation}, to which I may continually come; You have given the commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress. -Ps 71:3

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no-one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. -Isa 40:28-31

Trust in the LORD for ever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal! -Isa 26:4

The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior! -2 Sam 22:47
