Look at a few of the verse:
Earth is drenched in God's affectionate satisfaction. (33:5)
God's eye is on those who respect him, the ones who are looking for his love. (33:18)
Love us, God, with all you've got--that's what we're depending on. (33:22)
God keeps an eye on his friends. (34:15)
How about feelings? We're told Never hide your feelings from him. (34:5)
How does God show us his love? How about these words? Made to last, shaped us, watches over us, keeps body and soul together, meets us more than halfway, listens to us, there in times of trouble, pays for our freedom
How do we show our love for God? praise him, depend on him, bless him, live and breath him, spread the news, taste and see his goodness, turn back on sin, run to him.
God's love is far more than an emotion. From the day he shaped us, freeing us from the slavery of sin, for every time he rescues us from trouble, and one day, we will be with him in heaven, although that's not referenced here.
In fact, David tells us to find joy even in hard times: If things aren't going well, hear this and be happy: join me in spreading the news: together let's get the word out. God met me more than halfway. (34:2-4)
The ways we show love to God sound a lot like the ways we love our husband or wife. We tell them. We depend on them. We talk about them to everyone we meet. We look for their good qualities. We avoid things that displease them. We run to them when times are tough. Wives (usually) take their husbands' names ("we've taken for our own his holy name, 33:21).
Loving God doesn't mean we don't respect him, don't recognize his total God-ness. God's eye is on those who respect him, the ones who are looking for his love. (33:18) The way David worded these lines, respect and looking for God's love go hand in hand. You can't have one without the other.
Send God a flirt, and him alone. He will always respond.
Today's favorite verse: Disciples so often get into trouble; still, God is there every time. (34:19)
Disciples so often get into trouble;
still, God is there every time. 34:19
