Yes, as high as the heavens are above the earth, so powerful is his mercy toward those who fear him. As distant as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our rebellious acts from us.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your mercy for us, who fear you, is beyond what we could imagine. As we gaze up into the sky, it seems to continue on and on; we do not know the limits of heaven. As technology continues to change and we can see further into space, this verse from Psalms becomes more incredible about the power of your mercy for us. Then considering how far east is from the west, this is how far you have removed our sins from us. Because of Christ’s suffering and death, you removed our sins; there was nothing good in us that caused this to happen. Your love and mercy you have poured out on us, which we have seen its greatness demonstrated by the heights of the heavens. Thank you for loving us. Amen.
