As high as the sky is above the earth, so great is his love for those who respect Him. He has taken our sins away from us as far as the east is from the west.” Psalm 103:11-12 (NCV)
Have you ever seen stuff on the TV or the internet that shows you pictures of the earth from space? Do you ever get blown away by the sheer bigness of planet earth, of how small towns, cities and even countries look from the earth’s outer atmosphere? Impressive isn’t it?
Well that’s exactly what today’s verse is getting at. It says as high as the sky is above the earth, so great is his love for those who respect Him – just as the skies that are above the earth are so vast, so far away from earth, that’s how massive God’s love is for us. Today’s verse also says He has taken our sins away from us as far as the east is from the west. Try and get your head around that too, think about it, literally how far is the east from the west? It means God’s love is endless, there’s no limit to it. WOW.
