A Song of Renewal: Psalm 107:28-30

Psalm 107:28-30

They had been counting on themselves, thinking they had what it takes to handle their affairs, when suddenly a crisis of overwhelming proportions arises and now they do not know what to do or where to turn.

At last they turn to the Lord and they discover that He, and He alone, is capable of getting them to their desired haven. When that occurs they have a responsibility to thank the Lord for his steadfast love and for His wonderful works to the sons of men, and to do it publicly.
