God’s love for us is endless! There are so many great worship songs that come to mind. I especially love the ones that compare God’s love for us to an ocean.
“As your love, in wave after wave, crashes over me…”
Have you been to the beach before? If you haven’t you’ve probably seen a movie where someone is standing on the beach looking out at the ocean. The waves always crash into the shore. Over and over and over again. There isn’t anything that will stop those waves from coming back to the shore. That’s the same as God’s love for you! There is nothing in this world that will stop his love from coming after you!
“Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now
So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine”
God’s love for us is so great that we can’t even fathom the deepness of it. Did you know that scientists haven’t been able to find the deepest part of the ocean because it is just too deep for people to even get equipment there? God’s love and grace and mercy is deeper than that! In the deepest, darkest part of the bottoms of the ocean, God’s love for you is stronger, deeper, and brighter than even that.
“Like a tidal wave
Crashing over me
Rushing in to meet me here
Your love is fierce
Like a hurricane
That I can’t escape
Tearing through the atmosphere
Your love is fierce”
God’s love is so fierce and so stronger, stronger than any hurricane or tidal wave. The winds in a hurricane can get up to 156 miles per hour. God’s love for us can sweep us off of our feet!
