Psalm 107 is my favorite chapter in the Bible for Thanksgiving. That chapter gives us four pictures of
salvation, and every time it wraps the picture up with this repeated line – “O, that men would give thanks
to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men.” Thankfulness is a
necessity of the redeemed because it’s God who redeemed you. Man can’t save themselves. This chapter
paints the picture of a desert wanderer, a bound prisoner, a sick dying man, and a shipwrecked crew, all
of those need to be saved. They can’t save themselves and it’s God who saves them, not because they
did anything to deserve it, simply because He is God and He chooses to. The redeemed have no other
option but to be thankful. Rejoice in the sovereign God who saves.
