PSALMS 107: “THE GOODNESS OF GOD, LEADS US TO BE THANKFUL” 11-1-08

Let me say that this psalm {107} was pinned in 536 B.C. we’re not told who the author is, it was written to commemorate the return of the Jews from the Babylonian captivity.

We read in this psalm the same words of exhortation in 4 different verses, in verse 8-15-21 and 31 we have these words of exhortation; Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 9For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

The psalmist exhorts Israel and you and I to praise God for redemption from captivity and Gods guidance in perilous journeys as we sojourn to a safe habitation.

So you and I that are saved can glean many wonderful truths from this psalm and apply these truths to us today.

Listen as I read verses 1-3 of Psalms 107 1O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; 3And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

You and I that have been redeemed from the hand of our enemy,” the devil” should tell it far and near that the Lord is good and truly His mercy does endure for ever, He has and is gathering His Church from the 4 corners of the earth, Jews and Gentiles alike.

Acts 10: 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. 5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

Israel wandered in the wilderness—

They wondered 40 years in the wilderness of the desert, not really knowing where they were at are where and when their journey would end.

They murmured and complained to Moses about what they had to eat, and God sent Manna, and also Quail, they complained that they were thirsty, and God told Moses to strike the rock, and when Moses did out came water. God supplied their need.

Even today for the most part, the Jews don’t understand nor do they really comprehend what’s taking place as Gods great plan is unfolding, the old Orthodox Jews are still looking for their Messiah, we see pictures of the Jews worshipping and praying at the wailing wall’ as it’s called’ of Solomon’s Temple.

In a sense their still wondering, for the majority of the Israelites are blinded in part, but one day their eyes will see and they’ll understand that truly their Messiah has already come and fulfilled His 1st mission as He died on the cross not only for the Jews but for all mankind, and soon He’s to return and take His rightful place as King of the Jews. And then they recognize Who He is.

Zechariah 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.—the JEWS.

And lets be sure to notice that it says “wounds” not scars. We believe the “wounds will always be there as a reminder of what He did.

That is when the Jews will realize that Jesus truly was and is their Messiah and their King, but as of now they’re blinded in part. Some understand, but a large part of them don’t.

Romans 11:25 blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Ø And the same was true to you and I that are saved, we wondered in the wilderness of sin

not realizing where our wondering was going to end up, if we had not heard the Word of God and then the Holy Spirit using the Word to convict us of our sinful ways we surely would have ended up in hell.

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way;

We also wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way, we were going the way of the world, not realizing where we were going, hanging out in the hog pens of the world, never really knowing what danger we were in.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Psalm 36:4-- he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
