Psalm 136:1-9

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1


Have you ever tried to remember something by repeating it over and over? Like a phone number or an address? Sometimes, by saying something again and again, the message works its way into our brain and stays there forever.

In Psalm 136, there are 26 verses, and the second line of each one says the exact same thing: “for his steadfast love endures forever.” Clearly, the writer of this psalm wanted us to remember that God’s love is both ever-faithful and everlasting.

Why is that important?

Even though we can know that the Lord is good and that He takes care of us, sometimes our days can be pretty rough. But we serve a God who can overcome anything and everything. The God who has overcome Pharoahs, pagan kings and even death can also overcome the problems you encounter from day to day.

His steadfast love endures forever!
