Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength!
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
bring an offering and come before him!
Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;
tremble before him, all the earth;
yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,
and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth.
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!
“Save us, O God of our salvation,
and gather and deliver us from among the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name
and glory in your praise.
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting!”
Then all the people said, “Amen!” and praised the LORD.
—1 Chronicles 16:28-36

David continued his offering of thanks to the Lord in these verses. As we read his praises, we are reminded that God’s love is steadfast and forever. As children of our Heavenly Father, we can rejoice! Our God does not waiver in His love for us. He does not give up on us when we make poor choices. His love for each of us began before Creation and continues for eternity! Like David, we can praise the Lord, for He is good! Reflect today on His love for you. As you do, thank Him, praise Him, and share your story!
