Mid-Day Meditations ~ Psalms 107:28-43

Psalms 107:28-43
The Message

28
Then you called out to God in your desperate condition;
He got you out in the nick of time.
29 He quieted the wind down to a whisper,
put a muzzle on all the big waves.
30 And you were so glad when the storm died down,
and He led you safely back to harbor.
31 So thank God for his marvelous love,
for His miracle mercy to the children He loves.
32 Lift high Your praises when the people assemble,
shout Hallelujah when the elders meet!
33 God turned rivers into wasteland,
springs of water into sunbaked mud;
34 Luscious orchards became alkali flats
because of the evil of the people who lived there.
35 Then He changed wasteland into fresh pools of water,
arid earth into springs of water,
36 Brought in the hungry and settled them there;
they moved in - what a great place to live!
37 They sowed the fields, they planted vineyards,
they reaped a bountiful harvest.
38 He blessed them and they prospered greatly;
their herds of cattle never decreased.
39 But abuse and evil and trouble declined
40 as He heaped scorn on princes and sent them away.
He gave the poor a safe place to live,
41 treated their clans like well-cared-for sheep.
42 Good people see this and are glad;
bad people are speechless, stopped in their tracks.
43 If you are really wise, you'll think this over -
it's time you appreciated God's deep love.
