Psalm 107:2 ESV

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble”

Worship to get your “but” in front of God

I. I’m wandering, but God...

(Psalms 63:1, Romans 5:8, Ephesians 2:1-6)


Psalm 107:4-9 ESV

Some wandered in desert wastes...hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them.


Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them...till they reached a city to dwell in.


Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

II. I’m in trouble, but God...

(Psalms 46:1-3, John 16:33, 2 Corinthians 2:14)


Psalm 107:10-16 ESV

“Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons, for they had rebelled against the words of God, and spurned the counsel of the Most High.


So he bowed their hearts down with hard labor; they fell down, with none to help.


Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart.


Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! For he shatters the doors of bronze and cuts in two the bars of iron.”

III. I’ve been a fool, but God...

(Proverbs 9:6-8, 1 Corinthians 1:30, James 1:5-8)


Psalm 107:17-22 ESV

“Some were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction; they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death.


Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.


Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!”
