Psalm 136 invites us to give thanks by confessing that God is good and by witnessing to the ways that he is God of gods and Lord of lords. Our confession and our witness are welcome reminders of God’s activity in the story of our lives. Throughout Israel’s history, God showed up as Creator, Liberator, Savior…a forever Friend who loves at all times.
Forever is a promise of hope. Forever promises that God’s love has no end. The Psalmist knew God wasn’t finished writing their story. Likewise, God hasn’t finished writing the story of how deeply he cares for you and for me. May we remember the promise of forever during this week of giving thanks.
Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever. ~Psalm 136:26
