The Psalms have rightly been referred to as “the medicine cabinet for the soul.” In God’s kindness the Psalms provide a balm for wounded hearts, nutrition for weakend souls, and tranquility for anxious minds. They can restore the depleted, energize the weary, console the mournful, lift up the discouraged, and admonish the wayward. We would do well in our Christian pilgrimage to routinely keep ourselves in the Psalms.
So, if you happen to be reading this blog, I would like to invite you to join me in considering Psalm 107 over the next 2-3 days. Let’s try to read it a couple of times each day and, I will attempt to give a brief teaching/encouragement from it.
Why Psalm 107? Two reasons: one personal and the other biblical. The personal reason is that Psalm 107 blessed me on Monday morning and I trust it will do the same for you. The biblical reason is found in the Psalm itself. Psalm 107 concludes with these words, “Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the LORD.”
There is wisdom to be mined in this Psalm, if we will give our minds and hearts prayerfully to it. So, I hope you will accept my invitation to saturate your soul in the steadfast love of the Lord found in Psalm 107.
