Give Thanks to the Lord for He Is Good

“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary 3 And gathered from the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. 4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert region; They did not find a way to an inhabited city. 5 They were hungry and thirsty; Their soul fainted within them. 6 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He delivered them out of their distresses. 7 He led them also by a straight way, To go to an inhabited city. 8 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men! 9 For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.” Psalm 107:1-9

There are many words in this passage that refresh my soul and renew my spirit.

The passage begins with thanksgiving to the Lord because He is good. His lovingkindness is everlasting. God is love, and His love endures forever. Thank you Lord for your great love.

I’m encouraged to speak of the redemption I’ve gained from the Lord. He has redeemed my soul by grace through faith in Jesus Christ from the pit of emptiness and death that I deserve for my sin. Thank you for saving me Lord.

I was hungry and thirsty in my soul and he has satisfied me with what is good.

Thank you Lord.
