His Love Endures Forever!

Psalm 136

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.

  • we should give thanks to Him because He is deserving of all our thanks and praise

4 to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever. 5 who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever. 6 who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever. 7 who made the great lights— His love endures forever. 8 the sun to govern the day, His love endures forever. 9 the moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever.

  • The Lord in His glory has given us all of creation to prove His love for us. The universe is created to show His greatness towards us. The Earth has been placed in the just the right place to sustain life.  

10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever. 11 and brought Israel out from among them His love endures forever. 12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever. 13 to him who divided the Red Sea asunder His love endures forever. 14 and brought Israel through the midst of it, His love endures forever. 15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea; His love endures forever. 16 to him who led his people through the wilderness; His love endures forever.

  • It was by His mighty loving hand that he delivered Moses and the children from the bondage of Egypt and He is still willing to deliver all who would call upon Him for deliverance, amen. 

17 to him who struck down great kings, His love endures forever. 18 and killed mighty kings— His love endures forever. 19 Sihon king of the Amorites His love endures forever. 20 and Og king of Bashan— His love endures forever. 21 and gave their land as an inheritance, His love endures forever. 22 an inheritance to his servant Israel. His love endures forever.

  • When God is for us who can be against us (Rom 8:31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? IfGod is for us, who can be against us?)

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.

  • Just as the Psalmist is decalring his dependence upon LORD to work in every area of his life we should remember that He is our ever present help today when trouble arise.

26 Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.

Therefore let us give thanks for His love endures forever. When times get hard and the trials of life come (and they will) never forget His never ending love for us.  Amen

All Things New

All Things New

Today we have a new year ahead of us. Many of us will start the new year with resolutions; for better health, better stewards with our finances, and more time with family. All of which are good tools to put into our daily routine. Honestly speaking they will probably fall by the wayside within a few weeks.

As Christians we look to the Word of God and see what God has to say about new things, in John’s Revelation of Christ we find a good foundation on where our focus should be centered.

In the Book of Revelation we read of a new name (Rev 2.17; 3.12), a new song (Rev 5.9) new heaven and a new earth (Rev 21.1-8) John also tells us of a new Jerusalem (Rev 21.9-21) and a new light in (Rev 21.22-23). The glory of God will be our light and the Lamb of God will be the lamp.

All of these are “new as to form or quality, of different nature from what is contrasted as old”. Thus when Jesus say He’s making all things new He is replacing the old with His new.

As we start this new year I pray that we make some time for a new relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit putting Him first in all things trusting Him to lead us into the new year.

1Ti 4:13 Until [we] get there, [let us] focus on reading the Scriptures to the church, encouraging the believers, and teaching them.

 

Amen

All for Him
