Day 230, August 18 - Psalm 107

Click here for today's reading

4 Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in;
5 hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them.
6 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
7 He led them by a straight way till they reached a city to dwell in.
8 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!
9 For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

If you're wandering in a desert, cry out to the Lord!  He will deliver you!

  1. Psalm 107
    33-43 He turns rivers into a desert,
    springs of water into thirsty ground,
    a fruitful land into a salty waste,
    because of the evil of its inhabitants.

    He turns a desert into pools of water,
    a parched land into springs of water.
    And there he lets the hungry dwell,
    and they establish a city to live in;
    they sow fields and plant vineyards
    and get a fruitful yield.
    By his blessing they multiply greatly,
    and he does not let their livestock diminish.

    When they are diminished and brought low
    through oppression, evil, and sorrow,
    he pours contempt on princes
    and makes them wander in trackless wastes;
    but he raises up the needy out of affliction
    and makes their families like flocks.
    The upright see it and are glad,
    and all wickedness shuts its mouth.

    Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;
    let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.
