Psalm 136 ~ Yahweh’s Faithful Love for Me


A personal confession based on the Psalms.

Yahweh’s Faithful Love for Me ~ from Psalm 136

I give thanks to Yahweh
Because He is good,
And His love for me is faithful forever.
I give thanks to Jesus,
Who is King over all kings
And Lord over all lords,
And His love for me is faithful forever.

He is the one who does great wonders,
Because His love for me is faithful forever.
He laid out the heavens and the earth*
With skill and understanding,
Because His love for me is faithful forever.

He struck down the enemy,
Destroyed the works of the devil**
Because His love for me is faithful forever.
And He brought me out of bondage,
Because His love for me is faithful forever.
He has given me an inheritance,
Heaven on earth,***
Because His love for me is faithful forever.
He remembered me with His favor
When I was brought down low,
He lifted me up and rescued me,
Because His love for me is faithful forever.

Yes, I give thanks to Yahweh
Because He is good,
And His love for me is faithful forever.

* “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3).
** “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:14-15).
*** “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32). The kingdom of God is wherever the will of God is done on earth as in heaven. See The Kingdom of Heaven on Earth: Keys to the Kingdom of God in the Gospel of Matthew.
