We are continuing our series of reflections on the Psalms. Each day we will upload a new reflection to the website. We hope and pray that you will find them helpful and that they bring hope during this season. Click on these buttons to read the text of the psalm or listen to a recording of it. You can also listen to the reflection using the audio player below.
In this psalm we see the writer’s close relationship with God. He speaks about how God heard his cry for mercy (verse 1), how when he was in great need, God saved him (verse 6), how the Lord had been good to him (verse 7) and delivered him from death (verse 8).
God has been so good to him that he ends full of thanksgiving for both his past and his future (verses 15-16); and builds to a great crescendo of praise, (verses 17-19). We see that his relationship with God was his top priority and that God heard and answered his prayers. He gives thanks in the ‘presence of all his people’ (verses 14 & 19).
Let’s stay close to God and be sure to celebrate his goodness with each other!
I will give thanks to you Lord for all your goodness in my life. Thank you that you have rescued and delivered in so many amazing ways. Hallelujah!
