“I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations” (Psalm 89:1, ESV). Ethan the Ezrahite begins this psalm in jubilant praise. God’s past mercies stand as the basis for His people’s gratitude and witness. Such reflection on the past steels the people of God for trials of the present and future (see vv.38ff). Our hope lies not in ourselves nor in our circumstances, but in the “steadfast love” of God our Redeemer.
Remember and rejoice in the faithfulness of God. The Lord is kind and compassionate, and He has shown His love in the cross of Jesus Christ our Savior, who laid down His life for us. In hardship and struggle, in sin and defeat, in blessing and delight, proclaim the Lord’s steadfast love—remember the faithfulness of God.
