It's who He is

The 136th chapter of Psalms has 26 verses. It gives 26 virtues and/or things (mighty things) that our God has accomplished. He is good, He is the LORD of Lords, He parted the Red Sea, He struck down great kings, He led the Israelites through the wilderness. But .. this chapter says even more.

Every single verse reminds us that God's steadfast love endures forever. David says it TWENTY-SIX times! EVERY VERSE! God is good .. and His steadfast love endures forever. God did this crazy awesome thing .. and guess what?! His steadfast love endures forever!

I gotta believe David was trying to drive home a point. God loves us. It's who He is!  At the end of the chapter; after 22 verses of exclaiming God's greatness, David concludes with this:

23 It is He who remembered us in our low state, for His steadfast love endures forever; 24 and rescued us from our foes, for His steadfast love endures forever.
— Psalm 136

Such a great reminder.  God doesn't love us because of the great things He does; He does those great things BECAUSE He loves us. It's His great love story to us, His children.
