Psalms of Thanksgiving

Psalms 118:1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever!

The thing that distinguishes true “psalms of thanksgiving” is that they tell a story. For this reason they are sometimes called Psalms of Remembrance. Sometimes there is a pattern like…

A CRISIS

RESCUED BY GOD

VOWS TO GOD

EXPRESSIONS OF THANKSGIVING TO GOD (at the beginning and/or end).

See if you can see all of these elements in Psalm 118 (You could also look at Psalm 30, 105, 107 and 116).

What story do you have to be thankful for that fits this pattern of Psalms of Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Join us Wednesday night at 7 for Virtual Bible Class as we review this lesson on Facebook Live and Zoom.
