Read Psalm 105:1-6, 16-22, 45b


Read Psalm 105:1-6, 16-22, 45b

     Give thanks to the LORD, proclaim his greatness;
     tell the nations what he has done.
     2Sing praise to the LORD;
     tell of the wonderful things he has done.
     3Be glad that we belong to him; let all who worship him rejoice.
     4Go to the LORD for help;
     and worship him continually.
     5–6You 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.

     16The LORD sent famine to their country
     and took away all their food.
     17But he sent a man ahead of them,
     Joseph, who had been sold as a slave.
     18His feet were kept in chains,
     and an iron collar was round his neck,
     19until what he had predicted came true.
     The word of the LORD proved him right.
     20Then the king of Egypt had him released;
     the ruler of nations set him free.
     21He put him in charge of his government
     and made him ruler over all the land,
     22with power over the king’s officials
     and authority to instruct his advisers.

     45so that his people would obey his laws
     and keep all his commands.

     Praise the LORD!


This Psalm celebrates how God worked His purposes out despite the mistakes and evil intentions of people.  We feel overwhelmed by our mistakes, we feel defeated by the mischief of others.  But God is always at work to save us.


Let me put my trust in your saving grace, and yours alone.
