This passage is an extensive quotation of the first l5 verses of Psalm l05 (vv. 7-22). Four elements of thanksgiving are found in this song:
1. Remembering what God has done
2. Telling others about it
3. Showing God’s glory to others
4. Offering gifts of self, time and resources
It is unique to see how God taught His people through the rote memory of songs. There is really no better way to engrave historical and spiritual truths in the minds of people than in setting the words to music. In this passage we find a threefold call:
l. A call to service (vv. 8-9).
2. A call to return (vv. 10-11).
3. A call to remember (vv. 12-13).
I am so thankful for all that the Lord has done in and through my life in the past 62 years since I trusted Him as my Lord and Savior. It is hard to begin to describe all that He has done. I am sure that I have disappointed Him many times but He has never disappointed me. He has given me a wonderful wife to share this time with and a joyful life of ministry with Word of Life.
