“He brought me forth also into a large place; He was delivering me because He was pleased with me and delighted in me.” (Psalms 19: 18, Amplified Bible)
God’s tender love for us brings us the very best He has. His approval and delight at the fact of our being delivers to us the greatest gift we could receive: the gift of His Life. This Life is never small or limited in any way. It does not find its contentment in one small place or situation, or through only one individual or relationship.
He brings us into a large place. Because of His Love, He reveals to us a large Life, one that is expansive and open and fresh and arable—good for planting and growing, perfect for development and movement and building. This abundant and fertile Life also has much room for others—for an embracing and gracious welcome to other ideas of God, whether they be individuals or new endeavors.
God’s absolute delight in you means that He remains with you. He demands your company. All the protecting and uplifting power He has is at hand and He preserves you just as you are, because He loves you just as you are. Our large place, our abundant Life, is always expanding before us, never diminishing. He establishes us in this grand home of His and He is always opening new doors in this mansion, new paths on His gorgeous property, and at every turn we will always find Him—the good Life that is safe, comfortable, yet invigorating and refreshing Love.
