“He remembers his covenant forever; the promise he ordained for a thousand generations, the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac” (Ps.105: 8-9).

In the 105th Psalm, a historical Psalm according to reputable biblical scholars, the Hebrew poet offers a brief and stunning account of salvation history in poetic form. At the heart of this record is a profound sense of God’s fidelity to the chosen people of Israel. God keeps his promises. He will never go back on His word. Hence we have every reason to have confidence in God. “He remembers his covenant forever”

Let us ask ourselves if we are faithful to our promises and true to our word. Years ago, one of America’s greatest songwriters, Irving Berlin, composed a song in honor of the woman he planned to marry. The title is “Always”. The lyrics are memorable. “I’ll be loving you always with a love that is true always. When the things you’ve planned need a helping hand, I will understand always”.

Words can ring hollow if the speaker is untrustworthy. Such a person inspires neither confidence nor respect. The same cannot be said of the God of Israel. God’s constant fidelity constitutes their reason for prayer and gratitude.
