“For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations” (Psalm 100:5, ESV).
This last verse of Psalm 100 parallels the third verse, reflecting on God’s goodness in the call to worship Him. God is worthy, apart from any blessings given us; yet He has taken the initiative, and we bless the Lord who has lavished upon us His kindness and love. Note the emphasis on God’s abiding goodness: His love is “steadfast”, it “endures forever”, as does His faithfulness, “to all generations.” Our confidence and joy is in the overcoming and victorious grace of God.
Take courage, take comfort; lift up your head, stand fast—the steadfast love of the Lord endures. He does not abandon us, despite our many failures. He has not left us, despite whatever pain or trouble we may find ourselves in. God’s kindness continues, and He will be with His children in every situation, to lift them up in His chosen time.
