Psalm 107:1-22

“Give a testimony? Who, me? Don’t ask me to get up and testify. I don’t know what to say!” The idea of witnessing or evangelism intimidates many Christians. Yet, to witness or testify simply means to tell what has happened to us, like the Psalmist called us to do: “Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story.”

For those who don’t know what to say in a testimony, Psalm 107 provides a simple two-point outline. The writer even repeated these two points three times in this Psalm (verses 6,13 and 19)–a sure sign that we should pay attention!

The first point: they cried out to God. The second point: the Lord delivered them.

In response to God’s deliverance, we should thank the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds. This instruction is also repeated three times in this Psalm. One way in which we show our gratitude to God is by telling others what God has done.

When have you cried out to the Lord? How has God delivered you from your distress?
