The Testimony of the Redeemed – Psalm 107

“O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy…” Psalm 107:1-2

God’s grace extends to people from all walks of life and to all corners of the globe. The Psalmist exhorts us not to be silent in our testimony for the Lord, but to “say so” proclaiming how He has redeemed us “from the hand of the enemy.” To the searching (vv. 4-9); the stubborn (vv. 10-16); the sick (vv. 17-22); and the storm-tossed (vv. 23-32), God’s hand reaches down to the children of men in different ways and under different conditions but all with same result: to underscore man’s desperate condition and to highlight God’s mercy and wonderful works to the children of men. Let us not forget that it was this same Lord who also came to our rescue and delivered us from “so great a death” (2 Cor. 1:10) with a “so great salvation” (Heb. 2:3). What a story!

We’ve a story to tell to the nations,
That shall turn their hearts to the right
story of truth and mercy, A story of peace and light. — Nichol
