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

Desert Song version 2.0

Desert Song by Natalie Grant. Her version really captured me. The music. The arrangement, Her voice. Everything. I’ve been stuck with this track for some weeks now. I play it over and over again, whether through my music player or just in my head. But more than its musical value, the lyrics of this song are really empowering. This is a perfect song to sing during dark and lonely days, or when you’re passing through life’s tough challenges. It is a declaration of freedom and a reminder of the victory that we have in Jesus. . “All of my life, In every season, You are still God. I have a reason to sing. I have a reason to worship.”

HOW GREAT THOU ART by Ascend the Hill

O Lord my God,
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy Hand hath made
I see the stars
I hear the mighty thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed
When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul

And when I think
My God, his Son not sparing
Sent him to die I scarce can take it in
That on the cross
My burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin
When Christ shall come

With shouts of acclamation
And take me home, What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim, “My God, how great you are!”

Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul

How great your love for us! (Then sings my soul)
You shed you blood for us! (Then sings my soul)
How great your love for us! (Then sings my soul)
You shed you blood for us! (Then sings my soul)

How great your grace for us!
That you gave it all for us!

Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great you are!
How great you are!
Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great you are!
How great you are!
