Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 107:1-21. The chapter reminds us, “O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: his mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so.” Have you been redeemed by the blood of the lamb from the hand of the enemy?
The Psalmist talks about the children of Israel and how the LORD gathered them from the north, south, east, and west. They were wandering in the wilderness without any place to call home. They were hungry and thirsty. They cried out to the LORD. He delivered them and led them to their chosen city.
You will see the same verse several times throughout this chapter, “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” God satisfies those who long for Him and fills those who hunger and thirst for Him with His goodness. He sets the captives free, those who are bound by the chains of their rebellion against God.
The children of Israel caused a lot of their own problems by being discontent and disobedient to God. When they saw their distress and cried out to God, He heard their cries. He sent His Word and delivered them from their own destruction. How many times do we cause our own problems by being stubborn and rebellious? As the redeemed of God we need to be obedient. We need worship and praise Him. We need to share the Gospel with others. As believers we’re called to share with the world the wonderful gift of salvation that they can have through Jesus Christ, God’s Son.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.
13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
15 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Things to think about:
- For what do you give thanks to the LORD?
- In what ways do you praise the LORD?
- Do you only cry out to God when you are in trouble, or do you talk to Him on a daily basis?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We give thanks to You for Your mercy, goodness, loving-kindness, and wonderful works. Help us to be obedient and not rebellious. Help us to worship and praise You in spirit and truth. We love You, LORD. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
