Psalm 107:8 ” Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for me.”

Why should we desire to praise God? The answer is, it takes our eyes off the world & all its carnal thoughts and places them on Him instead. This particular Psalm speaks of those wandering in the wilderness…the stark, bleak, wasteland we can find ourselves in when we stray. But straying doesn’t have to mean blatant rebellion…it can simply mean allowing our emotions to control our life rather than God. For when we permit fear, anxiety, & worry to rule, our eyes are off the Lord, our songs of praise are silent, and we feel as if we’re wandering alone…which if you think about it, is true. But just as this Psalm proclaims, we need to be praising God & thanking Him in the middle of our adversity…grateful for His goodness, kindness, & mercy…for He wants to help. Or as Deuteronomy 32:10 says, “In a desert land He found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; He guarded him as the apple of His eye.”
