Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise? Blessed are those who act justly, who always do what is right. Remember me, LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise.
Psalm 106 describes the “mighty acts” that God performed for His people. Even when Israel turned their backs on God, He never turned His back on them. Our heavenly Father’s “love endures forever.”
Many times love is conditional. You may have had parents who demonstrated their love only when you performed well. They expressed great pride over top grades, touchdowns, homeruns, first chairs and lead roles. But you felt their disappointment with B’s or C’s, fumbles, strikeouts or mediocre performances. But the love of the heavenly Father is different. His love endures forever; and since it is a perfect love, it is free from conditions.
When I trust in the Lord and become a child of God, there is nothing I can do to make Him love me more; there is nothing I can do to make Him love me less. He will love me as much tomorrow as He does today. That does not give me a license to sin; rather, it inspires me to obey my Father whose love endures forever.
Thank You, Father, for Your enduring love. Thank You that Your love is not based on my performance but is a perfect, unconditional, lasting love that is mine through Jesus. In His name I pray. Amen.
