Praise God for His Mercy

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 136-138.
Psalm 136 repeats, “For His mercy endures forever,” twenty-six times! The psalmist stated a truth about God in one line, then followed it with the repetition of His mercy. The psalmist began,
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!
For His mercy endures forever.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!
For His mercy endures forever…
(Psalm 136:1-3)
Then the psalmist listed several of the reasons that we should thank God and how He has shown mercy to us. In verses 4-9, the psalmist showed the works of God in creation.
In verses 10-25, he showed the wonders God worked for Israel.
Finally, the psalmist ended the psalm as he began it,
Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven!
For His mercy endures forever.
(Psalm 136:26)
Without naming what the psalmist named, today list examples of how God has shown you mercy.
