Daily D – Psalm 136:1
Psalm 136:1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.
His love endures forever. (New International Version)
His love endures forever. This psalm repeats these words again and again and again. The repetition makes a point. Read the whole song and see. In case you are having difficulty thinking of things to thank God for on this Thanksgiving Day, the psalmist gives us twenty-six distinct ideas to stimulate your gratitude.
Each of these twenty-six remembrances of God’s faithfulness in the past serves to remind us that as God has been, so he will always be. He never changes. He is good all the time, the song says. The song also says, all the time God is good. This is truth without any mixture of error.
God is love. He demonstrates his love from generation to generation, and from age to age. He made up his mind before the world began that he loved you. Before you were born, he knew you and loved you. Before you turned your heart toward him, he knew you and loved you. As you took your first steps of faith, he knew you and loved you. Wherever you happen to stand today, he knows you and loves you.
There’s more, so much more. Wherever he leads from where you are today, he will do so in love. His goodness and love are always available to give you guidance. Psalm 23:6 says,
“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.”
(New Living Translation).
I will give thanks from a grateful heart to the Giver of All Good Things.
Our Father, you are the Giver of All Good Things. Every good and perfect gift comes from your hand (James 1:17, 18). You have loved us forever. You will love us forever. You guide and you provide. Everything you do in our lives is a product of your love that endures forever. How good you are! How amazing is your grace! How abundant is your mercy! How could we not sing your praise and offer our thanks? Hallelujah and amen!

Romans 2:4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
Acts 18:24-26 Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, an eloquent speaker who knew the Scriptures well, had arrived in Ephesus from Alexandria in Egypt. He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit and with accuracy. However, he knew only about John’s baptism. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.
