>Psalm 107:1-9

In Psalms, Theology on September 10, 2007 by mstevensrev


107:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
whom he has redeemed from trouble
3 and gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west,
from the north and from the south.

4 Some wandered in desert wastes,
finding no way to a city to dwell in;
5 hungry and thirsty,
their soul fainted within them.
6 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
7 He led them by a straight way
till they reached a city to dwell in.
8 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
9 For he satisfies the longing soul,
and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

Steadfast and forever are great attributes of someones love for you. You cannot out run it, it hangs around, and you cannot get any longer than forever. This is the hope I see in the eyes of every couple that I have done a marriage for, it is pretty cool.

This is the biblical version of “Would the real slim shady please stand up.” Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Those he has brought out of trouble, from all over the world. I just got to preach on this yesterday when Jesus rescues the disciples by walking out to them in the boat. I know that he continually delivers me as well.

Deserts, hungry, thirsty all things that would lead you to cry and if you are a Christian cry out to God for relief, and maybe even if you are not a Christian you might try it and see if it works. God delivers. He takes the difficult road that we were on and makes it straight, until we arrive at a safe place to dwell. He fills us with good things.
