Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. – (Psalm 136:1, NIV)
Praise the Lord because He is good. His faithful love will last forever. – (Psalm 136:1, ERV)
Let everyone thank God, for He is easy to please! His tender love for us continues forever! – (Psalm 136:1, TPT)
Because God is good and loving forever, we ought to give Him thanks and praise. God’s love is tender and kind, for He loves us as we are, no matter how we come before Him. He loves us at our worst, and brings us to our best as we pursue Him. Every time that I pause and recognize all that God is and all that He has done, I cannot help but give Him thanks and praise. May we ever look around and see the goodness of God and give Him our gratitude, as His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord,
For He’s always good;
Love that’s forever,
His grace understood.
All praise to our God,
For His love that lasts;
It’s not dependent,
On future or past.
He loves us right now,
And He always will;
For that’s what Love does,
Brings peace and goodwill.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are always good, and that Your love endures forever. Forgive us for the times that we neglect to thank and praise You, as our perspective becomes clouded by the challenges we see, rather than Your solutions that we do not. Teach us to trust You and give You praise, no matter how things seem. Show us how to love those around us in ways that inspire hope and make Your love tangible. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we give you thanks forever, for Your love, goodness and grace. Amen.
