Morning by Morning, Thursday 2-18-10 – Always Ready to Rescue Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are faithful and true, mighty in power, and steadfast in love. … “Some wandered in desert waste places … hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them…. Some sat in darkness and gloom, prisoners in misery and irons, for they had rebelled against the words of God and spurned the counsel of the Most High…. Some were sick through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities endured affliction; they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death…. Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the mighty waters…. They mounted up to heaven, they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their calamity; they reeled and staggered like drunkards, and were at their wits end. Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress” (Psalm 107:3-28). No matter where we are, no matter how we got there, You are always listening for our call for help, You are always ready to rescue, to come to our aid and bring us out of our distress. You are the God who satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with every good thing (v. 107:9). You lift us out of all darkness and gloom, shattering the doors of our prisons and cutting in two our bars of iron (v. 107:16). You send forth Your word to heal our hurts and deliver us from destruction (v. 107:20). You still the storms and steady the seas that would overwhelm us and overtake us if we were left to drift alone (v. 107:29). This is “the steadfast love of the Lord” for all who humble themselves to call on Your name in our desperate times of need (v. 107:33). “O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those He redeemed from trouble” (v. 107:1-2). You redeem all the circumstances and troubles of our lives we will entrust into Your care, causing good to come out of them all in Your timing, in Your ways, in response to our prayers. So give us a heart to thank You for Your Presence and Your love even as we endure our struggles and give us a heart of praise when we look and see the mighty deliverance of Your great salvation (v. 107:8, 15, 21, 31, 42). In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen. Be encouraged today!
