  Study Tools

Psalm 107

Celebration is worship. The definition of celebration in the dictionary includes words and phrases like: to hold up, to honor, to perform publicly, sacramental, holy day and to demonstrate satisfaction.

What we want you to walk out of here with today is a correct understanding of worship and celebration.

This is how we are going to do that.

We are going to look at a Psalm and the description it provides for why and who should worship God.

We are going to discover together what and who we worship.

Let’s take our sermon notes which include the scripture lesson for this study.

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, And gathered out of the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south.” Psalm 107:1-3 Who are these redeemed people?

1. Those who have been in the desert of life.

Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. 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 thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” KJV

Have you ever been in the desert of life? All of us have. If you have been rescued from the desert of life, you ought to be a celebrator of the Living God.

2. Those who have been bound by darkness.

Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains, for they had rebelled against the words of God and despised the counsel of the Most High. So he subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” KJV

One of the greatest things God does is bring light to the darkness. He is light. If you have ever seen the light you ought to be a worshipper of the Living God.

3. Those who have experienced depression.

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