-*Application* Our God redeems us from our adversaries, and the redeemed of the LORD should say so. He gathers His people from the north, south, east, and west to recollect the anointed in glorious array (Psalm 107:2-3). Though we have wandered and transgressed His holy commands; when we cry out to the LORD in our trouble, He delivers us out of our distress and straightens out our paths (Psalm 107:6, 13, 19, 28, Proverbs 3:5-6). This is the song of Israel and for all who believe in the Name of Jesus (Acts 10:34-35). Our thanksgiving and praise should be continually present for His lovingkindness, goodness, and wonders, which satisfy the hungry and thirsty soul fully (Psalm 107:9). Rebellion enslaves and afflicts, but the redemptive healing of the LORD frees and gives complete liberty by His eternal Word (Psalm 107:10-22, 41). God will establish His people in abundance and blesses with multiplication (Psalm 107:36-39). The wise will give heed to these things and consider the benefits of a loving and good God (Psalm 107:43).
