Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 36:5-9 NLT


[5] Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.

[6] Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O LORD.

[7] How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.

[8] You feed them from the abundance of your own house, letting them drink from your river of delights.

[9] For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see.

Reflection . . .

This Psalm reflects on some of the attributes of God. What are they? God is . . .

  • Love – He is full of unfailing love that extends beyond what we can see. The Lord’s unfailing love is a precious thing because it is what protects us.
  • Righteous – His righteousness is strong like the mighty mountains. His justice goes deeper than we can see or imagine.
  • Caring – He cares for people and animals alike — All living things! The Lord provides for us abundantly and He gives us to drink from freely and with pleasure.

The Lord is the fountain of life,

the light by which we see!
