" O give thatnks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever." Ps 136.1

Has God ever been good to you? That is a question that would be impossible to say no to; for if we are still alive, and our souls and bodies are not being burned in utter torments of the most terrible caverns of hell, God has been good to us! As we are well aware, we have no power within ourselves to retain our souls. There is no power that we have to keep our souls from the lake of fire at any given moment in time. We are terribly corrupt, and utterly powerless to help ourselves. When we recognize this fact, we can certainly cry out as the Psalmist did; O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Let us be thankful though that God does not only take care of the eternal matters, but he also takes care of the temporal, or earthly matters as well. If God was not good at all times, if his mercy slumbered for just a moment, this life would be a literal hell on earth. God has been good to each and every one of us. His mercy is measureless, and his love is limitless. He does not have mercy for a span, but as this Psalm says, it endures for ever. Has there ever been a time in your life when you have recognized the mercy of God in your life? If so, his mercy, whether you realize it or not is just as real today as it ever was. When you endured some hardship, and God was there through it all, his mercy is the same today. When you lived in days of prosperity and peace, it was Gods mercy that took you there, and no matter what position you are in today the mercy of God has not changed. Oh let us give thanks!!
