His Lovingkindness Is Everlasting

Psalm 106:1

Praise the LORD!   
Oh give thanks  to the LORD,  for He is good;
For His lovingkindness  is everlasting.

It seems like  in our everyday talking  we don’t use the word “lovingkindness” very much  —  if at all.     But, “lovingkindness”  has a lot of meaning  and can be applied  to each day we are allowed  to live  on this earth.

The way this word is used  in the Hebrew language,  it includes the concepts of:   mercy,  kindness,  goodness,  favor,  pity,  and a zeal  towards anyone.

Bible verses using this word  are saying  that God is zealously merciful  towards us.     The Lord is zealously kind,  good, and favorable  towards every one  of us.     And,  God has a heart filled  with loving  pity  for us  as He sees us entrapped  by sin all around us.

In other words, God loves us  to pieces,  and is constantly doing things  to help us out.     But,  our problem is  that we take all that  for granted.     Some are even arrogant enough  to feel  that God’s lovingkindness  is their due.    They think  they deserve every blessing they get here  on earth  and wonder why  they don’t get more.     They complain  and grumble  in every situation  —  never once giving thanks  for the blessings  they do have.

Oh,  that is so wrong.     We need  to be looking  at all the ways  that God blesses us from day to day.     Everything  from the air we breathe  to the food we eat  and the strength we receive  to overcome problems  —  all this  and more  is good reason  for thanking  and praising our LORD.

Every time we are tempted  to complain  and grumble,  let us remember our blessings  and where they come from.     Even in our deepest pains,  God is zealously loving us  and mercifully leading us  to the life everlasting.     His ways are always good  and right.

As we remember  to praise the LORD  and give thanks  for all that He does,  we say,  “Hallelujah!    Lord,  thank You  for knowing the depths  of our real needs  as You lead us  in a stronger faith,  hope  and love.     Truly,  Your lovingkindness towards us is everlasting.”

Love,
Margaret
