Psalm 136, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150:
In Psalm 136, the phrase “for His mercy endures forever” follows every line, like a cause and effect:
“Give thanks” because why? “FOR His mercy endures forever”
“He does great wonders” because why? “FOR His mercy endures forever”
“Who remembers us in our lowly state” because why? “FOR His mercy endures forever”
Everything good that happens originates with the Lord.
In all of these psalms today, we see: the Lord never leaves anyone out. He actually never leaves at all. All people, generations, all ages, all situations, all creations… as everything falls under the category of “creation”, no one escapes the love and attention of the Lord. As everything and everyone for all time has the opportunity to benefit from the goodness and mercy and love of the Lord, then no one is exempt from the praise and worship of the Lord. ️ His faithfulness and generosity and kindness ought to inspire our faithfulness and praise and worship in return.
His mercy endures forever!
