Thanksgiving Scripture - Nov 8

Introduction...



Day 8 Psalms 107:1-9
(Memorization Scripture: vv. 8-9)
1 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.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;
They found no city to dwell in.
5 Hungry and thirsty,
Their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
And He delivered them out of their distresses.
7 And He led them forth by the right way,
That they might go to a city for a dwelling place.
8 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness,
And for His wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For He satisfies the longing soul,
And fills the hungry soul with goodness.



[Sharing] The psalmist says that each one who received grace should give thanks to God. By counting the grace of God, we should be reminded that He is good, and His mercy endures forever. He saved us from enemies, and from the hand of all who hate us, and He led us the right way, so that we would not be lost in the wilderness. Also out of His love, He promised that “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6)
Yes, all we like sheep have gone astray, it is He that found us in the wasteland, a howling wilderness. He encircled us with love, He instructed us, He kept us as the apple of His eye. And also He poured out His soul and became the bread of life for us. As Jesus said “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)

Day 8 詩篇107:1-9 因神慈愛的救贖和應許稱謝祂
(背誦8-9節)
1「你們要稱謝耶和華,因他本為善,他的慈愛永遠長存!」
2 願耶和華的贖民說這話,就是他從敵人手中所救贖的,
3 從各地,從東從西,從南從北所招聚來的。
4 他們在曠野荒地漂流,尋不見可住的城邑,
5 又飢又渴,心裡發昏。
6 於是他們在苦難中哀求耶和華,他從他們的禍患中搭救他們。
7 又領他們行走直路,使他們往可居住的城邑。
8 但願人因耶和華的慈愛和他向人所行的奇事都稱讚他!
9 因他使心裡渴慕的人得以知足,使心裡飢餓的人得飽美物。



【心得分享】 詩人呼籲每一個蒙恩的人都要來稱謝耶和華,藉著數算 神的恩典提醒我們,我們的 神本為善,祂的慈愛永遠長存! 神曾救贖我們脫離仇敵的手,領我們行走直路,不在曠野漂流。又因愛應許我們,凡心裡渴慕尋求祂的人都得飽足。
是的,我們也都曾如羊走迷,是祂把我們從曠野荒涼野獸吼叫之地找回,用愛環繞我們,看顧我們,保護我們,如同保護眼中的瞳人。祂又將自己的生命傾倒,成為我們生命的糧,正如耶穌所說:「我就是生命的糧。到我這裡來的,必定不餓;信我的,永遠不渴。」(約6:35)
