God’s amazing loyalty to His people

Psalm 107:1 (NET), Psalm 107:12 (NET), Psalm 107:13 (NET), Psalm 107:2 (NET), Psalm 107:43 (NET), Psalm 107:8 (NET)

Giving thanks is not merely an act that we should take for granted but one of heartfelt joy as to what we’ve been or going through to declaring our future hope!

Amazing things!

A good way to give thanks is to consider the Amazing things the Lord has done in your life!

Consider the Amazing things He did for Israel!

Take a moment to think about how God showed his loyal love to his people in this psalm.

Where you’ve been from, the struggles and the heartache, and wandering. vv3-19
coming to a realisation of your need for God in your life!

consider life’s circumstances for a moment. Are you in a place of safety or suffering? v12&13 it seems the Lord uses suffering or rather our wanderings to help us to see our need! After all the healthy don’t need a doctor do they!?!

God’s promise when we His people cried out to Him —
— brought them out of darkness
— tour of their shackles

God is in the business of transformation – TOTAL!!! when we cry out to him and allow Him in our lives he will transform us!

Give thanks today for where you are right now in your life. Cry out to Him asking him for help! And allow him to transform you from the inside out! Finally give thanks as you recall the amazing things he’s done in your life and the life of people around you!

It’s another psalm calling God’s people to community! Yet looking at the rest of the psalm recounts the failings of God’s people to boast about the wrong things!!!! Continue reading
