“For His lovingkindness is everlasting” (Psalm 136:1-26).
Scripture challenges us to “give thanks in all circumstances.” With the varied circumstances that can come against us, have you ever wondered how this is even possible? From God acting in creation, to the highs and lows of Israel’s history, the psalmist describes twenty-six various circumstances and, yet, for each one the prevailing attitude is one of thanksgiving. Why? Not because of circumstances but, rather, this — “For His lovingkindness is everlasting.” In all our circumstances this is the one thing that prevails.
