God consistently expresses faithful love
NOTE: Following is an update on a previous post.
“Has YHWH redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has saved you from . . .” Psalm 107:2
In reading through Psalm 107, I am encouraged to see “the faithful love of YHWH.” 107:43 Whether he is turning springs into deserts or deserts into springs, He is at work in the midst of all. We should praise God for the consistent expressions of His faithful love. Four groups of people in this Psalm
1. Wandering in the desert, lost, homeless, hungry, thirsty 4, 5
2. Sitting in darkness and gloom, miserable, in chains, in rebellion 10,11
3. Fools in their rebellion, appetite gone, death near 17,18
4. Fleeing in ships around the world v23
In each case, YHWH acts in faithful love to bring them back.
Reminded of Zechariah 4:10, “Do not despise small things. The Lord rejoices to see the work begin.”
I rejoice that His work has begun. God speaks, “Rest in my goodness this day, I am enjoying what I have begun to do in and through you.”
Gratefulness and sheer joy!
