Morning Devotion November 12th Psalm 107
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! This is a wonderful psalm which shows that we can give thanks from many different situations.
Verse 4: Some wandered in desert wastelands – there are those who have no home or place to settle. I am thinking here of those who do not know God, nor do they know the purpose of life. Yet when they call to the Lord He will deliver them and lead them home.
Verse 10: Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom – These are those who have rebelled against God and find themselves in spiritual bondage but when they call to the Lord, He sets them free.
Verse 17: Some became fools through their rebellious ways – In their rebellion against God they are afflicted by God but when they call out to the Lord He comes to heal them.
Verse 23: Others went out to the sea in ships – These are those who seek their own fortune and care not for the provision of God. But they find trouble in the storm and when they call out to the Lord He stills the storm to a whisper.
In each situation – however far from God – when someone calls out to the Lord He comes to resolve their situation and they give thanks. Those who have no spiritual Rock on which to build their life; those in rebellion who find themselves in bondage; those who rebel against God and those who seek their own way – not one of these is so far from God that He will not come to save for “He turns the desert into pools of water, He provides food for the hungry and settles the homeless in cities.”
“Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the Lord.”
