Psalm 136:1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures for ever.We repeat things for lots of reasons. We repeat things we simply cannot believe. And we repeat things that we cannot believe—but want to.
In some translations of the evening psalm, “For his steadfast love endures for ever” is repeated in every single verse. During some seasons of life, we can sing Psalm 136 because we are so happy with God and experience love as tangibly present. When we say, “his love endures for ever,” we really mean it.
