As you read Psalms 136, you can’t help but notice the repeating of the phrase “His love endures forever.” There are 26 verses in this chapter and each one ends this way.
Unlike many Psalms, I can kind of see how this one fits to a song – as the Psalms were intended to be used. Yet, reading it without the musical context, the emphasis on this phrase had an impact on me. Here are the first three verses:
1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. 2 Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. 3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.
Kinda reminds you of the song we sing in our churches called “His love endures forever,” doesn’t it?
I’m thankful for this reminder today of God’s greatness, His provision, His power and majesty. But I’m especially thankful for His love, without which I would be lost.
Thank You for your forever love, Father.
grace & peace,
