God's Love: Day 2

His Love Never Quits

 
Read Psalm 136 (MSG)
 
Thank God! He deserves your thanks.
His love never quits.
Thank the God of all gods,
His love never quits.
Thank the Lord of all lords.
His love never quits.
 
Thank the miracle-working God,
His love never quits.
The God whose skill formed the cosmos,
His love never quits.
The God who laid out earth on ocean foundations,
His love never quits.
The God who filled the skies with light,
His love never quits.
The sun to watch over the day,
His love never quits.
Moon and stars as guardians of the night,
His love never quits.
The God who struck down the Egyptian firstborn,
His love never quits.
And rescued Israel from Egypt’s oppression,
His love never quits.
Took Israel in hand with his powerful hand,
His love never quits.
Split the Red Sea right in half,
His love never quits.
Led Israel right through the middle,
His love never quits.
Dumped Pharaoh and his army in the sea,
His love never quits.
The God who marched his people through the desert,
His love never quits.
Smashed huge kingdoms right and left,
His love never quits.
Struck down the famous kings,
His love never quits.
Struck Sihon the Amorite king,
His love never quits.
Struck Og the Bashanite king,
His love never quits.
Then distributed their land as booty,
His love never quits.
Handed the land over to Israel.
His love never quits.
 
God remembered us when we were down,
His love never quits.
Rescued us from the trampling boot,
His love never quits.
Takes care of everyone in time of need.
His love never quits.
Thank God, who did it all!
His love never quits!
 
Reflect
 
As you read today’s passage, was there a point at which you started to skip over, “His love never quits”? It occurred so often that your eyes began to jump to the next line? I wonder if we do this in more ways than in just our reading. How often we forget that God’s love is behind every instance we are picked up, rescued, and cared for. How often we forget that God’s love is the means by which we are reborn, restored, and remade. God’s love never fails, falters, or fades—no matter how far or hard we fall. 

  • As you trace the major (or even minor) events of your life in the last month, where do you see God’s rescuing or caring love at work? 
     
  • In what area of your life do you need to really soak in the truth that God’s love never quits? As a way of practicing believing, say aloud or write down exactly what you’re experiencing and after each phrase or thought, say or write the refrain: “God’s love never quits!” 
     
  • Who do you know that needs to remember that God’s love never quits? Seek God’s wisdom about how and when you could remind that person today.

Respond
 
God, thank You for Your constant, unfailing love. I need to be reminded again and again. Help me remember. No matter what tomorrow holds, Your love will not quit. No matter my failings and shortcomings, Your love will not quit. There are no circumstances under which Your love will not cover and surround me on every side. And there has been no moment of my life in which I was outside of Your love. Your love never quits. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
