April 17, 2021 – Psalms 107-111

In Psalm 107, the psalmist speaks for the downtrodden (that’s pretty much all of us, for everyone, at one time or another, has been slighted, sorrowful, needy, whatever). The redeemed of the Lord have been rescued from trouble (107:3). “Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in; hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them” (107:4,5). But they cried to the Lord, and he delivered them. Those longing and hungry, God has filled with good things (107:9). “Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons” (107:10); they, also, cried to the Lord, and he delivered them from their distress. “Some were fools through their sinful ways” (107:17), but even these, when they cried to the Lord, were healed and were delivered from destruction. Some went down to the sea and, in the storm, they staggered and were afraid, but the Lord delivered them when they cried to him. “He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed” (107:29). God has given water to the thirsty and food to the hungry. Indeed, let us “give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” (107:1)


Give thanks and praise to God above,

For everlasting is His love;

Praise Him, ye saints, your Savior praise,

Forever good in all His ways.


Let all His servants tell abroad

The never-failing grace of God;

Let all who fear Jehovah's Name

His everlasting love proclaim. –The Psalter

The Bible is a fascinating book. It directs us to God. It tells us the truth about ourselves and invites us to the Savior. It tells us that all we have is a gift from God, and at the same time, ins

In a schedule of reading through the Bible in a year, the book of Proverbs has always seemed the most difficult book for me. Many of the individual proverbs are sort of stand-alone wisdom sayings, and
