Thank the Lord
Today's reading: Psalm 107:1-43
The opening verses of Psalm 107 tell us, "Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble" (vs. 1-2). The remainder of this psalm then lays out several scenarios where God rescued and redeemed sinful people. Immediately after each of these scenarios, we see this statement repeated a total of four times:
"Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!" (vs. 8, 15, 21, 31)
Is thanking God for His steadfast and saving love something you do regularly? Why is this important? If you haven't already, tell God how thankful/grateful you are for Him today. Tami
