Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say SoPsalms 107:1-3 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!For His mercy endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, 3 And gathered out of the lands,From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So We are the redeemed of the Lord whom the Lord has called out and gathered from every tribe, nation and tongue. We are the apple of His eye. His goodness resides with us and we are highly favored and blessed in Him. It is our joy and our privilege to declare the Lord’s goodness and His lovingkindness. The Lord has afflicted His people in their arrogance and rebellion. He has brought them low so that they might look up to their Redeemer in true repentance and cry out to Him. In that lowly place He hears them and delivers them out of their torment and sorrow. Our greatest stumbling block is pride and self-reliance. When we wander from Him, we wander into the wilderness of desolation, famine and spiritual depravity. In that place we must be humbled to be restored. In the last of Psalms 107, verses 39-43, the Word says, “When they are diminished and brought low Through oppression, affliction, and sorrow, 40 He pours contempt on princes, And causes them to wander in the wilderness where there is no way; 41 Yet He sets the poor on high, far from affliction, And makes their families like a flock.42 The righteous see it and rejoice, And all iniquity stops its mouth. 43 Whoever is wise will observe these things, And they will understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.” It is the humble, the contrite, and those of a broken heart that the Lord smiles upon with His lovingkindness and mercy. It is the redeemed that have experienced both the blessing and the discipline of the Lord that appreciate Him so. We have seen what our ways have brought us, and yet even in our unfaithfulness the Lord abides faithful. We are the declaration and the exclamation of His faithfulness and it is the redeemed who say so. Psalms 34:2 says, “My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear [thereof], and be glad.” It is the humble that realize and acknowledge that everything that they are and hope to be is found in the Lord’s strength and in His life. They acknowledge that in Him they find the resources and provision for all that He has called them too. We are the Lord’s redeemed. Let us walk humbly before our God in fear and admiration, in respect, dignity and obedience. Let us declare His works before men in both our words and our actions. Blessings, #kent

Psalms 107:1-3

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!For His mercy endures forever.

2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,

3 And gathered out of the lands,From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south. 

Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So

We are the redeemed of the Lord whom the Lord has called out and gathered from every tribe, nation and tongue.  We are the apple of His eye.   His goodness resides with us and we are highly favored and blessed in Him.  It is our joy and our privilege to declare the Lord’s goodness and His lovingkindness.  

The Lord has afflicted His people in their arrogance and rebellion.  He has brought them low so that they might look up to their Redeemer in true repentance and cry out to Him.  In that lowly place He hears them and delivers them out of their torment and sorrow.  Our greatest stumbling block is pride and self-reliance.  When we wander from Him, we wander into the wilderness of desolation, famine and spiritual depravity.  In that place we must be humbled to be restored.  

In the last of Psalms 107, verses 39-43, the Word says, “When they are diminished and brought low Through oppression, affliction, and sorrow, 40 He pours contempt on princes, And causes them to wander in the wilderness where there is no way; 41 Yet He sets the poor on high, far from affliction, And makes their families like a flock.42 The righteous see it and rejoice, And all iniquity stops its mouth. 

43 Whoever is wise will observe these things, And they will understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.”

It is the humble, the contrite, and those of a broken heart that the Lord smiles upon with His lovingkindness and mercy.  It is the redeemed that have experienced both the blessing and the discipline of the Lord that appreciate Him so.   We have seen what our ways have brought us, and yet even in our unfaithfulness the Lord abides faithful.  We are the declaration and the exclamation of His faithfulness and it is the redeemed who say so.  

Psalms 34:2 says, “My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear [thereof], and be glad.”  It is the humble that realize and  acknowledge that everything that they are and hope to be is found in the Lord’s strength and in His life.  They acknowledge that in Him they find the resources and provision for all that He has called them too.  

We are the Lord’s redeemed.  Let us walk humbly before our God in fear and admiration, in respect, dignity and obedience.  Let us declare His works before men in both our words and our actions.   

Blessings,
