Psalm 136 – His Love Endures


God’s love endures forever.  There are many expressions of his love, yet what amazes me is that the God who set the sun, moon, and stars in place is also the God who ensures we have food to eat and protects us and watches over us…

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.
4 to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
5 who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.

23 He remembered us in our low estate
His love endures forever.
24 and freed us from our enemies.
His love endures forever.
25 He gives food to every creature.
His love endures forever.
26 Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1-5, 23-26

It is amazing to me that God remembers us in our lowly estate.  We are obviously and naturally humble in our interactions with the one who made the heavens and the earth, yet he remembers us.  He considers us.  He watches over us.  He loves us.

He loves with the love that endures forever.

The God of forever has love which endures forever.

If we work back from our amazement, we will find out that the God whose love endures forever actually made the heavens and the earth for the people he loves.  I don’t read that God knit a rock or a tree or a star together in his hands and knew them by name.  He made them and he named them.

For us, however, God has a greater connection.  Greater than with creation.  Because he breathed his breath into us.  He made us in his image.  And so his affection for us is even more intimate that we could imagine.

His love endures forever.

Amen.

Marc Kinna
