There are things that have immeasurable value to me. I can’t put a monetary value on everything I have. I know that most of the things I own have some level of value. I can determine the value of my automobiles or my house. Most of my material possessions if not all can have a monetary value. When I look at relationships, I see that most if not all are priceless. I have some relationship that pull negatively on me but most my relationships by far are investing in me. I can’t begin to calculate the value of deep relationships to me.
David often reflects on his relationship with God. He seems to understand what God brings to the relationship versus what he brings. Check this out…
5 Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
7 How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast in the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light. (Psalm 36:5-9 NIV)
I can’t begin to put a monetary value on the love of God. His love changes not only my life after this life – His love changes my life now to the end here on earth. As I reflect on the Presence of God in my life, I can’t quite wrap my head around what that means to me. I find myself worshipping God from a heart of deep gratitude when I take a moment to reflect on the value of His love to me. One of my favorite Third Day songs was based on this Psalm – Your Love Oh Lord.
Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains
Your justice flows like the ocean’s tide
I will life my voice
To worship You, my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow on Your wings
