Psalm 107 Bible Study
1. Always look to God in times of trouble and give thanks to him
You should surrender all your problems to God. You should discuss all your problems to God including small and big problems. Since God is the master of your life, you must let him know every issue you are facing. God knows your problems but he wants you to discuss with him and ask him for help. After praying, you must not say negative things because it shows that you doubt in God. When God answered your prayer, you must give thanks to him. In James 3:6, and the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
In Matthew 7:7, ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. In Matthew 11:28-30, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, in every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
