“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;” Psalm 103:11 (NIV)
We are often reminded that when the Bible speaks of fearing God, it means showing him proper respect and awe. So if you are one who respects and revers God, these words are a promise for you. Yes, it is true that God's love for us is so great that it can't be measured. Our verse mentions the distance between the heavens and the earth and that is something that has never been measured for certain. We look at the stars on a dark night and we are told that there are heavenly bodies which we can't even see. They are too far out in space and would take hundreds of thousands of light years to reach. The greatness of God's love for us cannot be measured but because it is right here with us, we can experience it. It is too great for us to comprehend and yet it is right here with us and for us. Now, that's great isn't it?
