Psalm 107:19-22

Throughout the season of Lent our daily devotions have been written by members of the Faith Lutheran community. Our theme this Lent is “Jesus Our Healer.” Today’s devotion comes from Lenora Ohlenbusch.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress;

he sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction.

Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.

And let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices, and tell of his deeds with songs of joy. Psalm 107:19-22

In Psalm 107 David tells us that no matter what our problems are, we need to let God know what our needs are and He will take care of us. And we in turn must be thankful, recognize what He has done for us by giving ourselves and treasures joyfully and by doing so we are sharing with others. This, to me is saying, open yourself up to God, let Him know our concerns, questions and problems, He is there to help us work out the answers.

I could not read this passage from the Old Testament without seeing Jesus as he walked on earth fulfilling this promise. Jesus heals us and rescues us by dying on the cross. Now we give thanks for what He has done for us. We give of ourselves and tell the world what He has done and continues to do every day through our efforts.   The most important part of this passage is to be Thankful!

Let us pray: Dear God, Thank You for being there for us to bring our problems to and hearing us. Help us to never forget that You are there and that You sent us the Greatest Healer, Jesus Christ, since it is only through him that we are healed. Give us the open hearts and minds to recognize this and above all never let us forget to give thanks and tell of Your good works with songs of joy. Amen.

    Thank you Lord for your steadfast love!

    This lesson really resonated with me and thanks to Lenora for that.

    Jeremiah “30:17 For I will restore health to you, and I will heal you of your wounds, said the Lord; because they called you an outcast, saying, this is Zion, whom no man seeks after.”

    Just stop in on An Open Track Day, it is the opportunity for you to drive your car or bike on the racetrack.
    It doesn’t mean all the driving schools offer a quality driving instructor, since some of the driving schools
    offer courses just for their revenue. After a short drive from Clifden you’ll start to see signs for Connemara National
    Park.
