Online Bible Verses - Psalm 136: Love conquers all, love overcomes.

Updated on September 27, 2013

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136:1,26NIV

Yesterday we touched on prioritizing prayer and recognition of God, making Him first; going to Him before we get caught up in the current of everyday life. In other words, get off to a solid start each day.

Today we focus on thanking Him, even if things are not exactly as we would have them be.

For some, things are far from what they would want, for varying reasons. People find themselves in different places.

I am very thankful today. At the same time, I have concerns for some of my friends. One has just been informed that their child has Leukemia. What could possibly be good in their world? A test of faith no doubt, but I know them and they will not be throwing in the towel and cursing God. My family and I are reading through the Book of Job right now, quite applicable.

Note the theme of today’s verse talks of a loving God. When things are crazy and tough, try this exercise: take a good look at one of your children while they sleep. Matter of fact, make it the one who gives you the most trouble. Faith and Gospel aside, consider how you feel as you look upon them. Now ponder the odds a designer who made you and your kid feels an even stronger love for His created. Or, better yet, the odds you could exist with a capacity for such love, coupled with a reality such a trait came about randomly.
