Psalm 107: 29-30

“He stilled the storm to a whisper, the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired havens”

The author of Psalm 107 is unknown. The Psalm speaks about four types of people in distress and how God rescued them.

They include: –
▪those in the wilderness (verses: 4-9)
▪people in captivity (verses:10- 16)
▪ those who are sick (verses: 17-22)
▪and those in distress (verses: 23-32)

In each section we find the repetition of the verse,” Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them from
their distress” (vs: 6,13,19, and 28)

⚡ And each time after God graciously delivers them, the people are exhorted ” Let them give thanks to the Lord for his
unfailing love and his wonderful deed for mankind”(vs:8,15,21,31)

⚡ This Psalm reminds us
that God will indeed hear our
supplications in the midst of
disrtress, and will deliver us.
But we must have a grateful
heart. This Psalm also says,
the same God who calms the storm points the way to
” our desired haven” (v:30)
is the God who sometimes
stirs up the oceans in our
lives.

⚡When we consider the
greatness of God’s love, His
Grace in sending Jesus Christ to die for us and rise
again, and what He has
delivered us from, we cannot keep praising Him
and wanting to tell others
how He changed our lives.

⚡ Paul says, “If only for
this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied” (1 Corin: 15: 19)
Our present / future hope rooted in Jesus’ resurrection
reminds us whether today is
good or bad, we have confidence in Him for a better day to come.
Let us remember in good
times, what we have learned
in days of trouble.
