Psalm 136:24

and freed us from our enemies,
His love endures forever.
(NIV)
Each of these verses has told us an evidence of God's love, and how it endures forever. As men, we can only evidence this eternal love by starting as far back as we know. We know that just before creation, there was God. He has always been, and He always will be. We know that He is (and always was) good. That is where the Psalmist started in verse 1. Then the Psalmist states that this good God was THE God and THE Lord. Then He begins to discuss our entrance into the picture through His creation.

As the author progresses through the Psalm, he relates some of the history of the children of Israel. And now he has brought us to the author's own life as he talks of how God has freed him (and the people) from their enemies.

As you think of God today, think back through the freedom He has freely given you. Think back to how He worked in the lives of the apostles and the prophets and the patriarchs. Think back to His creative works. Think back to who He is as King of kings and Lord of lords. Think back to His goodness that was there before creation. Think back to His enduring love. A love that always has been and always will be.
