1. Whereas the previous Psalm expires God’s creating and sustaining power, Psalm 105 celebrates His redeeming power for His people. What has God done for His people, in the first 15 verses?
2. Vv.16-38 are the story of Israel, from Joseph’s arrival in Egypt to Israel’s deliverance from it. Why does God keep His promises to them, and why does He keep His promises to you? Remember the Firstborn who was struck down for our redemption (v.36).
3. God looks after those He redeems (vv.37-45). What are all of God’s people saved for, and today have His Holy Spirit’s power for (v.45)?
A Prayer to Pray
Great God of wonders! All Thy ways are matchless, godlike and divine;
But the fair glories of Thy grace, more Godlike and unrivalled shine.
And so they do, dear Father. Teach me to be grateful for You, and for Your ways. And in this rich and free grace may I find You, and only then, find myself. Make me a joyful son, and a willing servant. Amen.
