During Scottish missionary Alexander Duff’s first voyage to India in 1830, he was shipwrecked in a storm off the coast of South Africa. He and his fellow passengers made it to a small, desolate island; and a short time later, one of the crew found a copy of a Bible belonging to Duff washed ashore on the beach. When the book dried, Duff read Psalm 107 to his fellow survivors, and they took courage. Finally, after a rescue and yet another shipwreck, Duff arrived in India.

Psalm 107 lists some of the ways God delivered the Israelites. Duff and his shipmates no doubt identified with and took comfort in the words: “He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven” (vv. 29–30). And, like the Israelites, they too “[gave] thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind” (v. 31).

We see a parallel to Psalm 107:28–30 in the New Testament (Matthew 8:23–27; Mark 4:35–41). Jesus and His disciples were in a boat at sea when a violent storm began. His disciples cried out in fear, and Jesus—God in flesh—calmed the sea. We too can take courage! Our powerful God and Savior hears and responds to our cries and comforts us in the midst of our storms.

We need to can take courage are powerful God and Savior hears and responds to our cries and comforts us in the midst of our storms today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Psalm 107 verses one through three and verses 23 through 32.

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord. Tell their story those he redeemed from the hand of the foe.

Those he gathered from the lands from East and West from North and South now picking up at verse 23, someone out on the sea in ships. They were merchants on the mighty waters they saw the works of the Lord is wonderful deeds in the deep, for he spoke and stirred up a Tempest that lifted high, the waves they mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths and their peril. Their courage melted away.

They reeled and staggered like drunkards. They were at their wits end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.

He stilled the storm to a whisper. The waves of the sea were hushed they were glad when it grew calm and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and is wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the counsel of the elders. Let's pray God, we thank you for not leaving us to face our storms alone. You are a great and mighty God, you give us peace with the challenges of life just seemed too overwhelming. Thank you for loving us so much and for providing a place of comfort and refuge in you. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
