His Love Endures Forever – August 5, 2016
Psalm 107:1, Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. 2Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those He redeemed from the hand of the foe.
The 107th Psalm is truly an amazing Psalm. Verse 1 says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” I love that thought; we can give thanks to the Lord for He is good. The truth is that not everything in life is good. Our jobs, our health, and the economy are not always good; however, God is always good. Did you read why God is so good? “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;” because “…His love endures forever.” Did you get that? God’s goodness is demonstrated by the fact that His love endures forever, and forever means forever.
Just imagine in your mind as far back as you can… all the way back to eternity past. God’s love was present then. Now imagine in your mind as far into the future as you can… all the way into the eternity, and God’s love will still be present then. Now think about right now… wherever you are, in your car, house, job. Guess what, God’s love is present right now! So, as you head into the weekend, remember that verse, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.”
Take care…and have a blessed weekend!
