Psalm 107

This Psalm is not only a message of comfort, encouragement, and direction, but it is also a warning.  It explains in detail, the reasons why some people find themselves in great trouble, but it also gives the direction for the way out of their trouble. “Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the LORD.”

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; His love endures forever

Encouragement and direction: Let the redeemed of the LORD say this: “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; His love endures forever.”

Warning: Some wandered in desert wasteland, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away.

Solution: Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress.

Result:
He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle.

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men, for He satisfies the hungry with good things.

Warning: Some people sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains (sounds like deep depression). Why? The reason is because they had rebelled against the words of God and despised the counsel of the Most High.  And that is why He subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help.

Solution: Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress.

Result: He brought them out of darkness and deepest gloom and broke away the chains (of depression)

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men, for He breaks down the gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.

Warning: Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death.

Solution: Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them from their distress.

Result: He sent forth His word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave.


 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men.  Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of His works with songs of joy.

Warning: Others went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the LORD, His wonderful deeds in the deep. For He spoke and stirred up a raging storm that lifted high the waves.  They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; In their peril their courage melted away .They reeled and staggered like drunken men;  They were at their wits end.

Solution: Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brought out of their distress.
Result: He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired have.

 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men.  Let them exalt Him in the assembly of the people and praise Him in the council of the elders.

Warning: The LORD turned rivers into a desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground, and fruitful land into a salt waste, BECAUSE of the wickedness of those who lived there.

He turned the desert into pools of water and parched ground into flowing springs; there He brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could settle. They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest; He blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased, and He did not let their herds diminish.

Warning: Then their numbers decreased, and they were humbled by oppression, calamity and sorrow; He who pours out contempt on nobles made them wander in a trackless waste.

Encouragement and direction:
But He lifted the needy OUT OF their affliction and increased their families.
The upright (are supposed to) recognize this and rejoice, but the wicked need to shut their mouths. Whoever is wise, let them heed these things and consider the great love of the LORD!

An Invitation: If you haven’t accepted God’s free gift of eternal life, but you would like to, simply pray this prayer:

“Jesus Christ, I believe you are the Son of God and the only way to God.  I admit that I’m a sinner, please forgive my sins and come into my life; I want to be born again.  Please show me how real you are. Also baptize me with your Holy Spirit. Thank you for accepting me.”

If you’re still a skeptic: “God, if this is true, please help me understand so that I can accept the gift of New Birth you purchased for me.”
