Psalm 105

105:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
make known his deeds among the peoples!
2 Sing to him, sing praises to him;
tell of all his wondrous works!
3 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!

My heart rejoices in you O Lord my God!  I will give thanks to you this day and I will make known among the people what you have done, what you are doing and what you are going to bring about.

4 Seek the Lord and his strength;
seek his presence continually!
5 Remember the wondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,
6 O offspring of Abraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

I will seek you continually.  As I read I will look for you. As I pray I will look for you.  As I vacuum and clean toilets I will look for.  As I have audience with angry parents, hurt staff, confused people I will look for you.  You alone are my strength and my wisdom.

7 He is the Lord our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.
8 He remembers his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,
9 the covenant that he made with Abraham,
his sworn promise to Isaac,
10 which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,
to Israel as an everlasting covenant,
11 saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan
as your portion for an inheritance.”

This is your land and you will do with it what you want.  Only have mercy on those who love you Lord, O God of Jacob.

12 When they were few in number,
of little account, and sojourners in it,
13 wandering from nation to nation,
from one kingdom to another people,
14 he allowed no one to oppress them;
he rebuked kings on their account,
15 saying, “Touch not my anointed ones,
do my prophets no harm!”

Though we may be few in number standing in the face of a vast army we will not falter.  We will stand and continue to stand.  We will face the enemy – who is not of flesh and blood – and we will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony in Him.

16 When he summoned a famine on the land
and broke all supply [1] of bread,
17 he had sent a man ahead of them,
Joseph, who was sold as a slave.
18 His feet were hurt with fetters;
his neck was put in a collar of iron;
19 until what he had said came to pass,
the word of the Lord tested him.
20 The king sent and released him;
the ruler of the peoples set him free;
21 he made him lord of his house
and ruler of all his possessions,
22 to bind [2] his princes at his pleasure
and to teach his elders wisdom.

Though there is pain in the offering still we will say, “Blessed be the name of the Lord!”  Amen.
