Let the Reedemed of the Lord Say So – Psalm 107:2

“Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble.” The Psalmist says that the redeemed proclaim their redemption because they cried out to the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them from their distress (Psalm 107:6). This Psalm lists many of the ways that people can get themselves into trouble and how the Lord will deliver them no matter how difficult the situation. According to the Psalmist, when God delivers us from our problems, we are to thank Him for His steadfast love because He intervenes in people’s lives. The Psalmist instructs us to thank God and to recognize and praise Him among people for His intervention in our lives–let the redeemed of the Lord say so! When Jesus healed the man with leprosy in Mark 1:40-45, though Jesus sternly charged him not to tell anyone, the man could not control himself “and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news” to the extent that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town in Galilee (vs. 45). When God intervenes and saves, heals, or delivers you from the problems and distresses of your life, then tell somebody about it!
