Daily D – Psalm 136:23
He remembered us in our weakness. His faithful love endures forever. PSALM 136:23 (NLT)
The first time I ever gave focused attention to this psalm was during chapel when I was in seminary. Dr. Bruce Leafblad led us in a call and response recitation. He would read the first half of the verse, for example, “He remembered us in our weakness.” The hundreds of students, mostly men, would respond, “His faithful love endures forever.”
Growing up in smaller membership Baptist churches in northeast Texas, there was not much mention of antiphonal worship. The Methodists and Presbyterians and Episcopalians may have done that kind of stuff, but not us Baptists.
That morning in chapel lingers in memory all these years later. The bottom line of life, the psalmist wanted us to remember, is that no matter what we face, no matter what we go through, our Father in heaven’s faithful love is never-ending.
God is love. He is the Eternal One. What motivates him and animates him is his unending love. His loving nature seeks our highest and best. His love endures forever.
Whatever your circumstances today or tomorrow or whenever, he loves you now and he will love you forever.
There is one truth that is truer than true: God loves me, and God loves you.
I will joyfully recall that I am loved by God.
Our Father, thank you for loving us now and loving us forever. Amen.

1 Chronicles 22:9-13 But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. He is the one who will build a house for my Name. He will be my son, and I will be his father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God. Then you will have success if you are careful to observe the decrees and laws that the Lord gave Moses for Israel. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged.”
