Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;
let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord. Psalm 107:43
The first three verses constitute an introduction, giving us an overall theme. Then there are testimonies from four groups of people.
- There are testimonies from people who are frantic and restless,
- there are testimonies from people who are bound in slavery,
- there are testimonies from people who are discouraged and hopeless,
- and then testimonies from those who are hit by storms.
Then from verse 33 to 42 the Psalmist speaks more generally of the way that God works in the world, concluding with verse 43…..
let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord
If you are broken, if you are at your wits’ end, remember this: Our God takes broken people, he redeems them, then uses them mightily in his work. So if you are one of these restless and frantic people looking for that place of refuge, that city of habitation, if you are in bondage, if you are discouraged and feeling that God can never use you, if you have been hit hard by an unexpected tragedy or failure, Psalm 107 is for you. God’s promise here is that he will never leave you nor forsake you, that he will always answer you, that he will give you his undivided attention, give you his unqualified acceptance, and answer you with unequaled power.
