O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 107:1)
We are doing a historical study of Psalms 105, 106, 107, and Acts 7. Our focus will be on Israel, the Church, and the United States. This week we will study Psalm 107 and God’s goodness.
When we come before the Lord to worship, we should begin with thanksgiving. Thank Him for all the wonderful things He has done. The acronym ACTS is helpful. A is for adoration. C is for confession. T is for thanksgiving. S is for supplication. Our God is worthy to be praised.
Exhortation to praise God v 1-3
- Give thanks unto the Lord v 1
- Let the redeemed of the Lord say so v 2
- God gathers the redeemed from their enemies v 3
“O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; 3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.”
One of the things we can be thankful for is God’s mercy. Without His mercy we could not be saved. Once we have received His mercy through His Son Yeshua (Jesus), we should proclaim this good news to whoever will hear it. So many people are in need of God’s mercy. God delivers His redeemed out of the hand of the enemies.
Are you redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ, who shed his precious blood on the cross? If so, have you told others of God’s mercy, love, and redeeming power? We all need to tell others about Jesus our Savior and Lord.
