Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story— those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, north and south. Psalm 107:1-3
I love Psalm 107. This Psalm was written to celebrate the Israelite’s return from their exile in Babylon. As you read this Psalm, read it in the thankfulness we all should have for our salvation and the salvation and restoration of our loved ones.
This Psalm begins with praise to the Lord for His loving kindness and faithfulness. The Lord saves us from our enemies.
God wants us to tell others all we have to be thankful for. He wants us to share what He has done for us. I am continually grateful for what the Lord had done when He restored my marriage. When we realize the power of the Lord, we will not be able to keep these glorious experiences to ourselves.
Has the Lord answered a prayer for you recently?
This Psalm speaks of four different people in distress and how God rescues them. There are the wanderers, the prisoners, the sick, and the storm-tossed. No matter how hopeless your situation may be, God can overcome it. He is loving and kind to those who are distressed.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. Psalm 107:6
The wanderers were delivered because of our great God. What a verse! God is faithful. He will deliver us from our troubles. That is why He died on the cross.
Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness, prisoners suffering in iron chains, because they rebelled against God’s commands and despised the plans of the Most High. Psalm 107:10-11
The prisoners may be in bondage of their own doing. Iron chains bound them, but God rescued them.
Those are just a couple of examples of God’s power. Are your loved ones lost, even possibly exhausted from their sinful lives? Are you facing overwhelming circumstances? We need to remember that Jesus came to rescue and save us. All you need to do is cry out to the Lord.
Nothing is impossible! Once you have been rescued, you will want to tell everyone what God has done for you.
