Have you ever said (or heard someone else say), “I love the Lord because…”? I know I’ve said it and I’ve heard it said many times myself. Last night I discovered that that phrase is in the Bible too.

Psalms 116:1-2 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

This is the only time throughout God’s Word that this phrase is used and is says SO MUCH. I know each of us could list numerous reasons for why we love God. But, really, what it all comes down to is we love Him because He first loved us.

The Psalmist said he loved God because God heard him and heard his needs and cries. God was there when no one else was…because God loved him.

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

Above and beyond anything else GOD LOVES US!!!! How great is that?!?!?!?

Thank you Tami, that was a blessing. God's love is beyond understanding, and we do well to think about it more, to understand as much as we possibly can!
