His Wonders  to the Sons  of Men!

We’re all  like little children  in so many ways.     We tumble  and fall down  —  and then try walking again.     We try  to express  our thoughts  to grownups,  but the words  don’t come out right.     We get  into mischief  because we don’t perceive  awful dangers.     We cry  because things we want  are denied  for safety reasons.     We get spoiled  so awfully fast  and always want  more treats.     We don’t always know  when we need sleep  and to just have time out.     Children require constant,  loving care  in order  to grow up  —  physical “grown ups”  do,  too.

God often calls us  His children.     That shows  His dedicated love  and concern  for our welfare  —  even though we might think  of our LORD’s ways  and discipline  as always denying us  the things  we think  we want  or imagine  we need.

When little children  always remember  the love  of their parents,  they can often be more inclined  to accept  their parents’ discipline  —  and try  to imitate their parents’ goodness.     In the same way,  physical “grown ups”  need  to always remember  the sacrificial love  of our heavenly Father.     Then we might tend  to be more willing  to live  according  to God’s will  —  to be good children  in God’s sight.     He is the one  who is always quietly,  gently,  and firmly leading us  to become  spiritually grown up.     When we accept  God’s discipline  with thankful,  loving hearts,  we will be  truly growing up spiritually.

Psalm 107 speaks  to our need  to grow up spiritually  and have thankful hearts.     Psalm 107:1-9 says,

Oh  give thanks  to the LORD,  for He is good;
For His lovingkindness  is everlasting.
Let the redeemed  of the LORD  say so,
Whom He has redeemed  from the hand  of the adversary,
And gathered  from the lands,
From the east  and from the west,
From the north  and from the south.

They wandered  in the wilderness  in a desert region;
They did not find  a way  to an inhabited city.
They were hungry  and thirsty;
Their soul fainted  within them.
Then they cried out  to the LORD  in their trouble;
He delivered them out  of their distresses.
He led them also  by a straight way,
To go  to an inhabited city.
Let them give thanks  to the LORD  for His lovingkindness,
And for His wonders  to the sons  of men!
For He has satisfied  the thirsty soul,
And the hungry soul he has filled  with what is good.

We need  to dwell   on these words  —  and apply them all  to our lives  in a spiritual way.     These verses  are speaking  to each and every one  of us  —  and should be applied  to personal incidences  in our lives.     Remember all  the different ways  God has wondrously cared  for us  spiritually and physically.     God has done many “wonders  to the sons  of men.”     We don’t deserve  His loving care,  but it’s always near,  waiting for us  to turn  to Him,  and live rightly.

With humble,  thankful hearts,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your faithful love.”

Love,
Margaret
