“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever” (Psalm 136:1, ESV).
All twenty-six verses of Psalm 136 have the same second part: “for his steadfast love endures forever”. I’d say that’s a theme! From this opening verse on God’s goodness, the psalm declares God’s utter supremacy (vv.2-3), as shown in His mighty work of creation (vv.4-9) and redemption (vv.10-25), before concluding on a similar note to the beginning. God is the Maker of all, and Savior of those who turn to Him. His love is steadfast and eternal.
When we think of God’s wonderful acts of creation and salvation, we should stand in awe before the Lord and have faith that He will see us through our troubles. God’s nature and character, His might and mercy, are our unfailing hope. He is able, and He is loving. May the steadfast love of the Lord sustain you today.
