Psalm 136

Good morning brothers and sisters. Today's Psalm has one meaning- mercy. To understand what it is saying, one must know what mercy is. Mercy is the withholding of punishment when one deserves it. So when you look at God's mercy, it is withholding punishment when we deserve it. And oh boy do we as human beings deserve it. Well, at least I know that I do. But He extends mercy and choses to teach me a lesson. Man I wished I would learn those lessons so much quicker.

1- Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

2- Oh give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever.

3- Oh give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever.

4- To Him who alone does great wonders, for His mercy endures forever.

5- To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, for His mercy endures forever.

6- To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, for His mercy endures forever.

7- To Him who made great lights, for His mercy endures forever.

8- The sun to rule by day, for His mercy endures forever.

9- The moon and stars to rule by night, for His mercy endures forever.

10- To Him who struck Egypt in their firstborn, for His mercy endures forever.

11- And brought out Israel from among them, for His mercy endures forever.

12-With a strong hand and with an outstretched arm, for His mercy endures forever.

13- To Him who divided the Red Sea in two, for His mercy endures forever.

14- And made Israel pass through the midst of it, for His mercy endures forever.

15- But overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea, for His mercy endures forever.

16- To Him who led His people through the wilderness, for His mercy endures forever.

17- To Him who struck down great kings, for His mercy endures forever.

18- And slew famous kings, for His mercy endures forever.

19- Sihon king of the Amorites, for His mercy endures forever.

20- And Og king of Bashan, for His mercy endures forever.

21- And gave their land as a heritage, for His mercy endures forever.

22- A heritage to Israel His servant, for His mercy endures forever.

23- Who remembered us in our lowly state, for His mercy endures forever.

24- And rescued us from our enemies, for His mercy endures forever.

25- Who gives food to all flesh for His mercy endures forever.

26- Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endures forever.

Yet here is another reason to sing praise of the Lord. He doesn't give us what we deserve. He choses to withhold punishment for what we truly deserve. Have a blessed day and rise up child of God, rise up!
