1Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
2Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.
3Know that the Lord is God. It is he that made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.
5For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
(Psalm 100, NRSV)

Be joyful in the Lord’s presence. For He is faithful and just and His steadfast love endures forever.

God is faithful to all generations.

6who spread out the earth on the waters, for his steadfast love endures forever;
7who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever;

No matter what happens in this world or in our lives.

No matter how dark it gets, so we can’t see to take a step.

No matter how many storms we face or trials that come.

God’s love will endure forever!

The prescribed reading for today was Psalm 136:1-9, 23-26. But I started reading the psalm and I really think the psalmist was trying to make a point.

Notice I also did not reformat the text this time for the reading to put it in a nice neat paragraph to fit nicely with the picture. Because the way it is laid out now you can see the point of the psalm.

Every other line, for his steadfast love endures forever!

You see no matter what may come our way. No matter what life will throw at us, his steadfast love endures forever.

We have no reason to fear or worry, because his steadfast love endures forever.

love endures

Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly of Israel, and spread out his hands. Now, O my God, let your eyes be open and your ears attentive to prayer from this place. “Now rise up, O LORD God, and go to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. Let your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let your faithful rejoice in your goodness. O LORD God, do not reject your anointed one. Remember your steadfast love for your servant David.” When Solomon had ended his prayer, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the temple. The priests could not enter the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD filled the LORD’S house. When all the people of Israel saw the fire come down and the glory of the LORD on the temple, they bowed down on the pavement with their faces to the ground, and worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD, saying, “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” (2 Chronicles 6:12, 40-42; 7:1-3, NRSV)

God’s love will always cover whatever we put before Him.

He will not reject His anointed, or put us away from Him.

His love is enough for any and all of us!

For He is Good and His love is steadfast and will endure forever!
