“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let Israel say: ‘His love endures forever.’ Let the house of Aaron say: ‘His love endures forever.’ Let those who fear the Lord say: ‘His love endures forever.’” Psalm 118:1-4
How much is there in this life that we can say with absolute certainty that it will be there tomorrow? Of course, we can hope, but in reality, we have no guarantees that our loved ones, our homes, our jobs, our finances will still be with us in the future. And contemplating that can be overwhelming and scary and make the days ahead seem dark and foreboding. But we have this promise found in this psalm, “His love endures forever.”
Every single moment of every single day we can have the assurance that the Lord is behind us, in front of us, surrounding us, and even in us with His everlasting love. And He is good. His plans are good. If our finances dip, when our jobs change, if a loved one goes to be with the Lord, when the things of this world pass away, we can still know beyond a shadow of a doubt that His love will be there sustaining us, comforting us, today, tomorrow, the next day, and on and on forever.
Father, thank You that I can stand on this truth: Your love endures forever.
