The theme of Psalm 107 is giving audible thanks to God for His goodness. The psalm gives four “personal testimonies”—illustrations of those who have been redeemed by the Lord and have reason to give Him thanks. Each testimony includes a similar progression: distress over the straits people found themselves in; a desperate cry to the Lord for help; and divine deliverance.
The passage is punctuated by a response—a “thanksgiving chorus” that is repeated at the end of each testimony:
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! (vv. 8, 15, 21, 31).
How does this progressive pattern shown up in your life? Have you developed your own thanksgiving chorus in response to all the ways God has seen your distresses, heard your desperate cries, and provided divine deliverance?
Father God, I am so grateful You see my distresses, hear my desperate cries, and willingly provide divine deliverance. Thank for bringing me out of darkness and breaking the chains of sin that ensnared me. Thank You for Your goodness, for Your steadfast love that endures, for me, forever.
Gratitude in Action: Write out your own personal testimony of God’s saving grace, following the progression found in Psalm 107.
