“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His faithful love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord proclaim
that He has redeemed them from the hand of the foe
and has gathered them from the lands—
from the east and the west,
from the north and the south.
Some wandered in the desolate wilderness,
finding no way to a city where they could live.
They were hungry and thirsty;
their spirits failed within them.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He rescued them from their distress.
He led them by the right path
to go to a city where they could live.
Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His faithful love
and His wonderful works for all humanity.
For He has satisfied the thirsty
and filled the hungry with good things.” (Psalm 107:1-9)
The first part of this psalm reminds me of a praise and worship song that I love. We are to give thanks to the Lord. Why? Because His love endures forever. He loves us so much and cares for us. He is faithful always.
The writer of this psalm speaks to God’s love and faithfulness throughout this psalm. Just in these few verses we see that to be true. The people were wandering and alone and cried out to the Lord. They were hungry and thirsty. They were tired and alone. The Lord heard them and led them out and brought them home. He took care of them.
The Lord does the same for those who love and follow Him He hears us when we call out to Him. He will lead us out of despair and into hope. So this week let’s us give thanks to the Lord for his faithful love that endures forever.
