Read Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45


Read Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45

      Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim his greatness;
tell the nations what he has done.
2     Sing praise to the Lord;
tell of the wonderful things he has done.
3     Be glad that we belong to him; let all who worship him rejoice.
4     Go to the Lord for help;
and worship him continually.
5–6  You descendants of Abraham, his servant;
you descendants of Jacob, the man he chose:
remember the miracles that God performed
and the judgements that he gave.
37   Then he led the Israelites out;
they carried silver and gold,
and all of them were healthy and strong.
38   The Egyptians were afraid of them
and were glad when they left.
39   God put a cloud over his people
and a fire at night to give them light.
40   Theyl asked, and he sent quails;
he gave them food from heaven to satisfy them.
41   He opened a rock, and water gushed out,
flowing through the desert like a river.
42   He remembered his sacred promise
to Abraham his servant.
43   So he led his chosen people out,
and they sang and shouted for joy.
44   He gave them the lands of other peoples
and let them take over their fields,
45   so that his people would obey his laws
and keep all his commands.
Praise the Lord!

Think

This is another Psalm that celebrates the Israelite's deliverance from slavery in Egypt.  And celebrates the grace that God gave his people as he formed them into a nation that would live according to his law.

Pray

Father God, in Christ you have set me free, through the Holy Spirit you have empowered me by writing your love for me and for the world on my heart.  Help me live according to this freedom you have provided.
