for his steadfast love endure forever;
and gave their land as a heritage,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
a heritage to Israel his servant,

It is he who remembered us in our low state,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
and rescued us from our foes,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
he who gives food to all flesh,
for his steadfast love endures forever;

Give thanks to the God of heaven,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

As I read this Psalm out loud the more I read, the more it sounded like the song it was written to sound like.

A song of promise. A promise from a God whose steadfast love has endured since the beginning of time…

A steadfast love when….

…the doctor says, “The outlook isn’t good.”
…you suffer another miscarriage.
…you lose the person you love the most.
…the pregnancy test says “Negative”…again.
…you lose your job and the bills don’t stop coming.
…nothing seems to go right…

God’s steadfast love endures forever

    Our God is always faithful. There have been so many times when I felt the sting of life, but later on saw how God turned that pain into something beautiful. Sometimes that beauty is in the way it has brought me closer to God because my need for His comfort becomes so great, and sometimes it is because I can now be that understanding shoulder for another person. His love really does endure forever. Thanks for sharing this verse today.
