Psalm 119:63-64

I was reading the Bible in church on Sunday and spent some time reading Psalm 119. These verses stood out to me:

Psalm 119:63-64
63 I am a companion of all who fear you,
of those who keep your precepts.
64 The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love;
teach me your statutes!

Verse 63 is a favorite in part because of it's importance to those early leaders in the Evangelical Covenant Church. Though I remember it being quoted as, "I am a friend of all who fear Thee". I love the generous spirit expressed there. It's bi-partisan and ecumenical.

The second verse troubles and warms me: "The earth, O Lord, is full of your steadfast love". I am troubled as I wonder where is that love in the midst of such poverty, strife and pain? Why isn't it doing more to transform the world? Yet I am comforted in my own trials as I know His love will never leave or forsake me. It also speaks to His pervasive presence. Though I may feel alone and abandoned He is no doubt there and loves me.
