“…His love endures forever” (Psalm 136:1)
A word from the Word: Read Psalm 136
“…His love endures forever” (Psalm 136:2)
Food for Thought: His Love Endures Forever…
Psalm 136 is a great psalm. Twenty-six times the phrase “His love endures forever” is repeated. Maybe just maybe the first readers, and surely all who came after the first audience struggled with accepting, understanding and maybe even believing God’s love. The wilderness generation tested God. They would not get to see the Promised Land. After all that He had done for them, and that they did to free themselves from Him, “His love endures forever.” Then in the period after Joshua and the crossing into the Jordan, the people turn away over and over again. Yet God’s love doesn’t fail. “His love endures forever.”
June 27, 2006. Think about your past week, this month, and even this year up to this point. Have there been any disappointments? Any weak moments? Dare I ask, any rebellious streaks? Even for those of us who have strayed, and fallen we too can claim the promise, “His love endures forever.” So, what’s holding you back this morning from spending some time soaking in His goodness and love? He isn’t to busy to heal a hurting heart.
His love endures forever.
