Your Redeemed History

They remembered that God was their rock,
the Most High God their redeemer.
~Psalm 78:35

On the eve of 4th of July, it seem natural to reflect on our nation’s history. Psalm 78 is about Israel’s redeemed history, about God’s goodness but also about Israel’s ungratefulness. As I read these verses, I think about the Pilgrims who made that first voyage to our continent and the moments of ungratefulness they must have experienced. When the winds blew and the seas raged. When the food tasted stale and the children cried all night. When the dead bodies of loved ones were thrown overboard.

I wonder if the Pilgrims read this Psalm to be reminded of God’s glorious deeds, faithful provision and eternal covenant.  I wonder if when they landed they looked for a single rock to step ashore on because they remembered like the Israelites that God had been their rock and Most High redeemer throughout their ocean crossing.

Whatever journey you are on this holiday weekend, I invite you to reflect on God’s goodness and give thanks for your own redeemed history.

    That gives me so much to think about, I am constantly ungrateful for all Gods provisions.

    This will make me reflect on my history and I wonder if there is anyone who does not encounter trials and then feel the need for redemption.
