Psalms 136 is a lovely Psalm in which David describes that God’s love and His mercies are eternal. There are four sections in this Psalms. In the first section David thanks the Lord for Who God is and declares that His mercies are forever.

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

Then David suddenly starts thanking the Lord for three things connected with us and declares that His mercy is forever.

Who remembered us in our lowly state, For His mercy endures forever;

And rescued us from our enemies, For His mercy endures forever;

Who gives food to all flesh, For His mercy endures forever. (Psalms 136:23-25)

Firstly, for remembering us:

Whenever the Lord remembers us then there is a divine intervention.

The Bible says that the Lord remembered Noah, and made the wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained.

God remembered Abraham and saved lot.

God remembered Rachel, and God listened to her and opened her womb.

God remembered Hannah and in the process of time Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel.

Therefore David pleaded with God in Psalms 132 saying, “LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:”

Beloved, today let us also cry out to the Lord pleading Him to remember us. He is merciful; He will certainly remember us and will do something so spectacular in our lives. We should be humble and lowly before Him. He resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. He will bring us out of all our afflictions as He brought David out of all His troubles many times. David experienced God’s mercies several times in His life. Even when he fell into sin, he humbled himself, repented and sought God for His mercies, and the Lord was merciful to him and forgave him. Therefore when Jesus came to this earth, many cried out to Him saying, Jesus son of David have mercy upon us. It’s like saying, Lord, You had mercy on David please have mercy on us too.

Secondly, David thanks the Lord for rescuing us from our enemies. What a joy to know this. David had experienced on several occasions God’s faithful love delivering him from his enemies. God will do the same thing for us also. We too will testify that the Lord has rescued us from all our enemies. The Lord who helped David and gave him victory over Goliath will also help us and give us victory over every ‘Goliath-like’ situation of ours. It is not by our might or power but by His spirit that we will win.

Thirdly, David thanks the Lord for giving food to all flesh. Yes, the Lord is our provider. He is the God of all flesh; nothing is too hard for Him. He has made us, He will bear us, He has created us, and He will carry us. He who has called us is Faithful. Hither too He has helped us; He will continue to help us. Encourage yourself, the Lord will meet all your needs. Continue to trust Him. You may need good health, wisdom, finance, a right life-partner, family blessing, whatever may be your need; He is your heavenly Father. He gave Jesus for you; will He not give you all things pertaining to life and godliness? Above all ask Him for the nature of Jesus and He will be so pleased to give it to you.

Finally, David concludes this Psalms by thanking our Heavenly Father.

Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endures forever. (Psalms 136:26)
