Psalm 107 offers hope and help.
Lost, scared, confused, and anxious are emotions described in Psalm 107. It may be easy for us to relate to these emotions.
We are not lost in the desert or being tossed on the open sea by a storm, but we may be lost in life being tossed by many circumstances. I believe we can easily relate to the Psalmists descriptions.
We may be lost in a crisis, not knowing which direction to turn. We may be scared about the future, not knowing what tomorrow holds. We may be anxious about an economic downturn and potential recession. Trade the desert winds and sea’s waves for the worries and struggles of today, and we are easily in Psalm 107.
Psalm 107 records the Lord provided deliverance each time he was called upon.
Verse 6 says, “Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.”
As we find ourselves lost and tossed in life, we can cry out to the Lord, and he will deliver us from our distress. Psalm 107 reminds us scared and lost people have cried out in the past, and the Lord has been faithful to deliver them from their troubles. The same is true for us.
In turn, the Psalmist encourages us to give thanks to the Lord.
Verse 8 says, “Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.”
- Give him thanks for what he has done.
- Give him thanks for his deliverance.
- Go ahead and give him thanks for what he is going to do.
To those in distress today, Psalm 107 suggests crying out to the Lord. We should also be sure to give him thanks today.
