SCRIPTURE READING:
Psalm 136:1-4, 26

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.
to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures forever.

SIGNIFICANCE:
The LORD JESUS CHRIST demonstrates His eternal love as the ruler of all heaven and earth.

Dear Father,I honor the Lord Jesus, the God of Heaven, Who deserves continual thanks. I am very grateful that His love endures forever, and that because of His enduring love, He created the heavens and the earth, including me and all mankind, and that He came to earth to demonstrate Your love and His love for us. As I read all of Psalm 136, I am in awe of His abounding greatness as the God of Heaven. A few of those aspects of His great-ness that are stated in this passage declare that He is: “the God of gods;” Who “alone does great wonders;” Who “spread out the earth upon the waters;” Who “struck down the firstborn of Egypt;” Who “divided the Red Sea asunder;” Who “led his people through the desert;” Who “freed us from our enemies;” and much more. This also reminds me of what the prophet Jonah said in Jonah 1:9 to the people who were asking who he was: “I am a Hebrew and I worship the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land.” I pray that You will increasingly reveal all the glories, attributes, promises and power of the God of Heaven to me and all believers, so we will fully live in His enduring love. May our passion for Him be so consuming that we must tell every lost person we can about Him. All my hope is in Jesus, in Whose name I pray these things. Amen.
