In part six of our eighteen-part devotion series entitled, "Sharing God's Love!" we turn to David for powerful words of wisdom.  Anytime anything is repeated in the Bible, it is always for emphasis.  In Psalm 136, we are reminded of this fact!  It is God's faithful love for which we should be thankful.  This seems rather rudimentary.  Doesn't God love everyone all the time?  Didn't we learn that in the children's song, "Jesus Loves Me," when we very young?  These statements are true, but it is our struggle as adults that make the psalm writer's words so important.  When we struggle in the world when Satan embraces us, we often forget about the faithful love of God.  We turn our backs on Him and focus on ourselves and life circumstances.  The hungry only become important if they happen to have our same last name!  Prayer is only important if it somehow benefits us.  Worship is only convenient when we don't have anything else to do.  How can we get so far astray from the heart and mind of God?  One word...distractions!  Satan strives to push us in his direction so that God's Word literally ceases to exist.  If the devil can keep us away from "fellowshipping" in the temple daily, we will have no Godly success in this world or beyond.  That is why we need to be reminded that all of our successes, talents, and joy come from God above.  He communicates those through us by loving us so completely that we can't mistake it.  While none of us were "first-had participants" at the original cross, we are all saved by the blood of Jesus Christ.  Any one who denies this fact, is simply foolish.  Remember what David had to say today.  Read it every day.  "His Faithful Love Endures Forever!"
