“We went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance” (v12). In recalling what God had done in his life, the psalmist was fortified to continue to pray and worship. His God had never let him down, and through every experience God had eventually brought him “to a place of abundance.” He was eager to tell his story to others: “Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul” (v16).
“Come and see what God has done …” (v5). God’s wonderful work in the past gives us hope that He is still with us and will deliver us again.
