Historical Review. – Psalm 107 begins the Book V and marks the end of the Psalter. This Psalm highlights four human crisis and how God redeems his people from each one of them: 1) The Loneliness of the lost path, 2) Oppression trapped in darkness, 3) disease, 4) Killed by the storm. The psalm concludes by inviting scholars to consider the facts presented so they can better understand the loving-kindness of God (verse 43). 

Pray without ceasing to overcome the crisis. – “The season of distress and anguish before us will require a faith able to endure weariness, delay, and hunger, a faith that will not faint though severely tried. Jacob prevailed because he persevering and  was determined to succeed. His victory is an evidence of the power of the importunate prayer. All who cling to the promises of God as he did, and be as honest as he was, will succeed as he succeeded so. Those who are not willing to deny self, to agonize before God, to pray long and earnestly for His blessing, will not obtain it. How few know what it is to wrestle with God! CS 606.

Give thanks. – Consider the story in Luke that says: “One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?” (Luke 17: 15-17). We need to thank God more for his wonderful works: “Let us not be always thinking of our wants and the benefits we receive. It never prays, how often we are very short on giving thanks. We are constantly receiving God’s mercies, and yet how little gratitude we express! How little praise for what He has done for us! we give (C 103).

Prayer 

Father of love and blessing. We appreciate the life you have given us, we recognize that you are good and merciful. We ask that you strengthen those, your children, who are going through difficult trials, In the name of Jesus, amen.
