Arrows of the Almighty
Absolute, Sovereign, Almighty Love
"The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness." (Exodus 34:6)
When God uses the word "abounding" here He wants us to understand and feel that the resources of His love are not limited. You can drink at this mountain spring all day, year after year, generation after generation, and it will never run dry - not ever!
Someone said, "It's like a government that always prints more money when you need it." The problem here is that
human government does not have a limitless supply even though they seem to want you to think so. God on the other hand does have an infinite treasury of golden love that covers all the currency He prints. Yes, unlike human government which is a dream world, God's bank never runs out for His sovereign deity covers all.
The absolute existence, the sovereign freedom, and the omnipotence of God are the volcanic fullness that explodes in an overflow of constantly flowing love. There is no deficiency in Him. His infinite self-sufficiency spills over in love to us sinners who need Him. The gift of Himself in Jesus - all we have to do is acknowledge that we really do need Him! For those who refuse to acknowledge His Almighty Love only face an existence where there is no love!
We can bank on His love precisely because we believe in the absoluteness of His existence, the sovereignty of His freedom, and the limitlessness of His power. Relax in His love you have eternity ahead.
