His Love Endures Forever!

Psalm 136 is known for repeating “His love endures forever” in all its verses. As I was doing my devotion, I can’t seem to dig deeper through it. I know that when something is repeatedly being said, it means emphasis. But beyond that, I know I’m still missing out on something. So I decided to tune in to Chris Tomlin’s “Forever,” which also reiterates “His love endures forever” in every verse. As I was singing, it felt good to sing “His live endures forever” over and over again. Then it occurred to me that, “Hey! Psalm 136 is also a song! And the Psalmist was singing those wonderful lyrics over and over again not in vain but in pure, solid worship; a declaration that indeed, His love and mercy is the same yesterday, today and forevermore!”

“…the everlasting continuance of the mercy of God is very much his honour and that which he glories in, and very much the saints’ comfort and that which they glory in. It is that which therefore our hearts should be full of and greatly affected with, so that the most frequent mention of it, instead of cloying us, should raise us the more, because it will be the subject of our praise to all eternity.” -Matthew Henry

THE WELL by Casting Crowns

“All who thirst will thirst no more
All who search will find what their songs long for
The world will try, but it can never fill
So leave it all behind; come to the well.”

Still have some sort of a hangover with the movie “Ring the Bell,” which featured Casting Crowns. This song was sung during the altar call (that the protagonist refused).

I love the message that this song conveys. It invites us to leave everything behind at the foot of God’s cross – our hurts, pains, feelings of rejection, frustrations, broken dreams, anxious hearts, etc. God knows we have junk, and He wants us to know that that’s what He came here for – to take them all and to make us new.

When God says, “leave it all behind,” He meas it. There’s no point coming to the well and leave it thirsty still. There’s nothing in this world that can satisfy, so let’s just once and for all come to the well. Just as we are, He will accept us. Just as we are, He will save us.

Laura Story: “Mighty To Save”

I was staying over at my favorite local cafe when this track suddenly played. It was originally sung by Hillsong, but I really fell in love with Laura Story’s version. But all the same, I like the lyrics of this song. It’s a reminder that since Jesus had already conquered the grave, there is nothing He can’t save us from – failures, fears, struggles, etc.

My Saviour, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

THIS IS THE DAY by Phil Wickam

GOOD LYRICS. GOOD MUSICAL ARRANGEMENT.

Can you hear it?
The gentle voice of the Spirit
There’s no reason to fear it
He’s calling You to life

Just surrender
Run into the arms of the Father
The night is finally over
Take a step into the light

This is the day when the lost are found
This is the day for a new beginning
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
Oh, can you hear all the angels are singing
This is the day
The day when life begins

Can you see it?
A light shines into the darkness
Bringing hope to the hopeless
It’s leading you to life

This is the day
When all your sins are washed away
In the waves of His unending grace
Forever you’re alive

This is the day when the lost are found
This is the day for a new beginning
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
Oh, can you hear all the angels are singing?
This is the day
The day when life begins

Have no fear salvation has come
And He is here
Have no fear salvation has come
And He is here
Have no fear
Have no fear

This is the day when the lost are found
This is your beginning
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
Oh, I can hear the angels sing

This is the day when the lost are found
This is the day for a new beginning
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
Oh, can you hear all the angels are singing?
This is the day
The day when life begins

I LOVE YOU MORE THAN THE WORDS THAT MY BRAIN COULD EXPRESS

LORD, I LOVE THE WAY YOU HOLD ME

BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL by Francesca Battistelli

Don’t know how it is You looked at me
And saw the person that I could be
Awakening my heart, breaking through the dark
Suddenly Your grace

Like sunlight burning at midnight
Making my life something so beautiful, beautiful
Mercy reaching to save me, all that I need
You are so beautiful, beautiful

Now there’s a joy inside I can’t contain
But even perfect days can end in rain
And though it’s pouring down, I see You through the clouds
Shining on my face

Making my life something so beautiful, beautiful
Mercy reaching to save me, all that I need
You are so beautiful, beautiful

I have come undone
But I have just begun
Changing by Your grace

Like sunlight burning at midnight
Making my life something so beautiful, beautiful
Mercy reaching to save me, all that I need
You are so beautiful

Like sunlight burning at midnight
Making my life something so beautiful, beautiful
Mercy reaching to save me, all that I need
You are so beautiful, beautiful
