For the Wonderful Works He Does Among Mankind

Some were wanderers, hungry and thirsty with no place to live . . . some lived in darkness, in the shadow of death because they had rebelled against God’s word and spurned his advice; they were brought low with hard labor and all possible helpers abandoned them . . . some were fools because of their sinful ways, bringing affliction upon themselves; they loathed food and drew near to death . . . Some were sailors who did business on the seas, who lost their courage and reeled and staggered like drunken men.

But in each case, they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. This is the story of Psalm 107, and it is a very encouraging saga. For it demonstrates that, no matter how bad our circumstances, and no matter how much those bad circumstances are of our own sinful making, it is always possible to cry out to the LORD for deliverance. Such a cry, made in sincerity, will not be ignored by our LORD. He will respond to us in love.

This is a great incentive to repent and turn to the LORD, to lift up our hands to Him in trouble, to never fear that He will reject us when we call upon Him. So call upon Him, and look for His rescue. Call upon Jesus, and wait for His mercy. No matter what you’ve done, throw yourself upon God, for He is our only hope and joy. And then, let us thank the LORD for His steadfast love, for His wondrous works among mankind!
