The Relationship Between God’s Love and God’s Power

He heals the broken in heart…He tells the number of stars.  Psalm 148:3,4

God shows active pity in the small circles of human experience and unmeasured power in the great realms of creation.

There is a relationship between God’s love and His power.  Without His love, why would we be inspired to love him?  Without His power, why would we fear Him as Lord?  God is neither too far off or too near.  If we only see God’s power we will only develop a sense of duty but never regard ourselves as children of the King.  On the other hand, when we recognize God’s goodness and nearness but forget He is high and lofty then we are apt to be seized by panic and pessimism when enduring trying circumstances.
