Twenty-six times in Psalm 136 we are told by the Psalmist that God’s faithfulness is everlasting. We are called upon to be thankful for all that He has done for us, to remember His constancy. Yet so often we find ourselves inconstant, far to busy with the things of this world, to remember His steadfast devotion to His creation. He makes no promise that we will not suffer, but he does promise to be with us always, in the best of times and in the worst of times. When there is but one set of footsteps in the sand, it is because of His faithfulness, His willingness to carry us. And so, as the Psalmist tells us in verse 26a, we “Give thanks to the God of Heaven…”. Every day we should start our day with a prayer of thankfulness for all that He has done for us.

Lord, Thank You for Your steadfast faithfulness to me, for being there for me in the best of times and the worst of times. I know You will be with me throughout this day, and I pray that I will honor You in word and deed. Amen
