Read Psalm 105:1-6;23-26;45b

      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.
23   Then Jacob went to Egypt
and settled in that country.
24   The Lord gave many children to his people
and made them stronger than their enemies.
25   He made the Egyptians hate his people
and treat his servants with deceit.
26   Then he sent his servant Moses,
and Aaron, whom he had chosen.
Praise the Lord!


This is one of the many Psalms that celebrate the 'sort of thing the Lord does' he delivers people from slavery because he loves justice - he is the saving God.


Thank you Lord that you specialise in saving people who are in a mess.
