We will be continuing our study of Psalm 107 by unpacking verses 4-9 together. The first three verses of the Psalm introduced the main theme that God is good and that His steadfast love endures forever. Then the next four stanzas go on to provide four showpiece demonstrations of God’s goodness and love toward us. In the coming weeks we will be celebrating each in turn. In verses 4-9, which we will be studying in this message, we are told about the love that brings us home.

4 Some wandered in desert wastes,
finding no way to a city to dwell in;
5 hungry and thirsty,
their soul fainted within them.
6 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
7 He led them by a straight way
till they reached a city to dwell in.
8 Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
9 For he satisfies the longing soul,
and the hungry soul he fills with good things.
