Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;

for His steadfast love endures forever!

1 Chronicles 16:34 (ESV)

 

There are those weeks, months, and seasons where we need a continuous reminder that His steadfast love endures forever!

Like the season I had three babies in three years and felt caught in a birthing tornado. I needed a continuous reminder that His steadfast love endures forever! Or that month of anguish when my husband felt led by God to quit his sales job for no job. I needed the continuous reminder that His steadfast love endures forever! And then there was the time in my life when I was beginning to work my way toward my childhood dream as an elementary teacher, yet God was leading me toward teaching His Word. I needed the continuous reminder that His steadfast love endures forever!

In the Old Testament, 42 times we are told that His love endures forever. The book of Psalms holds 36 of the 42, with 26 found in Psalm 136. Do you believe that whatever your circumstance today, His steadfast love endures forever?

 

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for His steadfast love endures forever. Ps 136:1

Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for His steadfast love endures forever; to Him who alone does great wonders, for His steadfast love endures forever; Ps 136:3-4

to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, for His steadfast love endures forever; and brought Israel out from among them, for His steadfast love endures forever; with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for His steadfast love endures forever;  Ps 136:10-12

 

This reminder of His steadfast love enduring forever allows us to move past our now.

Whatever you’re walking through, remember, His steadfast love endures forever! Whatever overwhelms you or paralyzes you, remember, His steadfast love endures forever! Speak it to yourself at breakfast, in the car, at every red light, as you prepare dinner, and kneeling by your bed tonight. Boldly and confidently claim this promise over your circumstances: His steadfast love endures forever!

Remembering His steadfast love in the midst of overwhelming circumstances is Living Deeper Still.
