Constantly Aware Of God’s Love

TODAY’S VERSE
I am always aware of your unfailing love, and I have lived according to your truth.
Psalms 26:2-3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What are you aware of? Every day you and I are the object of God’s unconditional love, and yet do we really live as if we are aware of it? King David did. He wrote, “I am always aware of your unfailing love, and I have lived according to your truth.” It is much like a baby. A newborn spends its first year of life being aware of its mother’s face, voice, and presence. After thousands of positive interactions with the mother, the baby experiences “emotional object constancy.” This means that the baby’s capacity for love and acceptance has expanded enough that the baby begins to live with the awareness of the mother’s love, even when she isn’t present. It was this way with David. You can imagine him as a Shepherd, basking in the beauty of God’s presence, meditating on God’s word, writing psalms like “The Lord is my Shepherd, I have all I need.” David was building up his capacity for the awareness of God’s love and acceptance. Is it no wonder he could later write, “I am always aware of your unfailing love.” Today, begin a habit of spending time with God. Attune yourself with His Spirit and how much He loves you. Soon you will build your capacity and emotional constancy. Then you, too, will be constantly aware of His great love for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me know You and Your love for me, better and better, so the reality of Your unfailing love for me will be a permanent part of my conscious experience.
AMEN
