Psalm 107:1-2 (NASB)
Oh give thanks to the Lord,
for He is good,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,
Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary
It seems kind of pointless to ask
people if God has ever done anything for them, doesn’t it? We do it all the
time, especially in church. Simply being alive, awake, and active answers that
question. I believe what we are intending to do, however, is to get people to
think about the goodness of the Lord at that moment. Just consider all the
things that God has done for us over the course of our few days.
Not only can we praise Him for
those things we know that He has done, we can likewise rejoice over the things
that we knew nothing about. The enemy is slinking around looking for ways to
destroy us, BUT GOD! Every time you think about how ‘lucky’ you were that some bad
circumstance missed you, thank God for His loving kindness. We attribute so
much to coincidence, but God knows how many hairs are on our heads, so why not
believe that He has orchestrated events to work out in our favor?
I praise Him even harder when the adversary
He redeems me from is ME. Sometimes we sabotage ourselves with our
disobedience, but He is always faithful. We need to ascribe to God the glory
due His name. If He wasn’t the almighty, the omniscient, the omnipotent, the
omnipresent, and the eternal God, we would be lost. As the redeemed of the
Lord, we need to SAY SO!
