Psalm 136

June 5, 2009

This psalm is written in liturgical form with a leaders words followed by a response by worshippers saying “His love endures forever”. The words of the leader illustrate and confirm the central theme that “God’s love is eternal”. The psalm begins with generalities. God is good. He is God of gods and Lord of lords. It continues by stating God does great wonders such as the creation of the universe, the redemption of Israel from Egypt, and their restoration in the Promised Land. This is a psalm of thanksgiving to God for who He is. God is faithful and remembered the plight of His people Israel. God freed them from Egypt and fed them. Therefore, it is proper to give thanks to God because He loves us and cares for us.

Take time to remember God’s goodness toward you, His love for you, and His care for you. Praise His Name and give thanks. Remember He is God of gods and Lord of lords. There is none like Him. Remember His love endures forever. What a Promise! What a Truth!
