Psalm 136

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever.

The psalmist repeats this refrain 26 times in Psalm 136, reminding us of God’s faithfulness in creation (v. 4-9), in delivering His people from Egyptian enslavement and leading them in the desert wanderings (v. 10-16), and in rooting them in the Promised Land (v. 17-22). Remember today that no matter what we face, God remembers us (v. 23), rescues us (v. 24), and sustains us (v. 25).

What is your psalm of God’s steadfast love in your life? Today as you read through Psalm 136, listen to it read aloud, or listen to part of it sung, consider journaling your own song to the Lord, giving thanks to Him for His love and goodness in your life.
