Every verse of Psalm 136 ends with the words “His love endures forever” and every grand purpose of our Creator over the years has always ended with these same words in mind. His knowledge and power are demonstrated in the physical universe through the miracles of Jesus Christ. By “mercy” He has saved all who were rendered miserable and the effects provide comfort to help endure forever. Remember His favor in leading His people into the Promised Land, His salvation through His Son, and His redeeming power that we may serve Him each amazing day.
This love that God has demonstrated helps us to learn how to treat others because He not only gave mercy to us but to all that believe in His Son. From creation through the deliverance of Israel to present times and into the future, the work of God’s strong hand and outstretched arm can be traced. He’s prompted to action when we are downhearted, in harm’s way, or in need.
In this psalm, God is saying to those who may doubt his love that He will provide in our time of need so don’t give up. He loves us and gives us an example to follow. He provides food for our physical body now and food for our soul to sustain us forever. This day with God, let us offer a prayer and thanksgiving in that His love endures forever. Let us never forget that we are praying to a God who loves us so much that He gave up His Son for us.
