There’s nothing Deeper than His Love

You have to see it to believe it. My visit to the Grand Canyon in Arizona last month left me quite speechless. Its beautiful, vast and deep!
446km long, 29km wide and 1.6km deep. It inspires you to contemplate the Beauty of its Creator and your own smallness.

As we stopped at the various overviews to take in the breathtaking landscape, I am reminded of a few verses from Scripture: God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea Psa. 46:2 Amazing! Even if all we were seeing in front of us had to collapse, God’s love for us will not because it is firm and unchanging.

We need to be reminded of this over and over again. Life has its fair share of ups and downs, peaks and valleys. Yet God’s faithfulness to us will not be shaken. If anyone will move, unfortunately it is us not Him.

Corrie Ten Boom, a Dutch Christian who survived the atrocities of Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in World War II, travelled the world to share her experience of God’s love in the terrible years of imprisonment in the death camp. Her message: There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.’

Looking down in the chasm of the Grand Canyon imprints these truths deeper into my heart:

The Lord s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
Psa. 32:10
