His Steadfast Love

In Psalm 136:1, David says that we are to give thanks to the Lord.  There is something wonderful about praising the Lord.  Praising the Lord means to thank the Lord for what He has done.  Being a Christian has so many benefits.  Eternal and Abundant life for example.  You have healing in every area of your life.  You can pray, read God’s word, go to the house of God and tell others about Jesus Christ.  The broken body has secured victory in every area of your life.  Jesus’ blood has given you forgiveness of sins, success, access to the throne of God and so much more.  These are things to be truly thankful for.  David then says that the Lord is good.  He is good to us because of His love, acceptance and forgiveness.  His grace and mercy have been extended to us.  Paul says, "That while we were yet sinners, Jesus died for us."  Jesus provided for us a way back to God.  All this before we even knew Him.  David closes off this verse reminding us that the steadfast love of the Lord endures forever.  Paul in Romans 8 said that nothing can separate us from the Lord of God.  God’s love is eternal and it is steadfast.  The love of God will always be there.  You will never find the love of God waning at any time.  He was faithful in the past, He will be faithful today and in the future.  God will always be there.  He will never forsake or leave you.  So today gives thanks to the Lord, For He is good and His steadfast love will endure forever.  Praise the Lord.
