“He Who Remembers Us” (Psalm 136: 1, 26; ESV) by Carley Evans

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.”

“It is He who remembers us in our low estate, for His steadfast love endures forever.” (Psalm 136: 23) It is God who searches for Adam in Eden. He calls to the man from “among the trees of the garden.” God says, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3: 9)

It is He who “rescues us from our foes.” (Psalm 136: 24) God promises the serpent — our enemy in the garden — to “put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” (Genesis 3: 15)

God leads us through our wilderness, and parts our Red Sea. He brings us out of our bondage “with a strong hand and an outstretched arm.” (Psalm 136: 12)

“Give thanks to the God of heaven, for His steadfast love endures forever.”
