Psalm 106:47: Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name,
and glory in your praise. (NIV)



Have you ever thought of yourself as part of an international praise and worship team? Have you ever imagined yourself as a member of a very large group of people, from all nations, all tribes, all tongues?

Sometimes, it’s easy to reduce our relationship with God to the small cosmic particle we call “me”. We center our thoughts, our hopes, our prayers around our own personal desires, making it easy to forget who we really are.

The psalmist cries out, “Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from the nations”. His heart longs for the company of those like him. He wants desperately to be drawn into the community of God’s people, having them pulled out of all foreign lands, and then to join them in celebration with praise and worship. His words reflect a strong desire for the people of God to be called together in one place.

Did you realize that His longing for God’s people to be called together, should also be a cry of your heart today? Have you ever thought about being among His many people, people who love the Lord just like you do? Take a moment, and think about it. Close your eyes, and imagine being a part of an international choir of voices gathered from all nations, lifting up thanks to His Holy name, and glorifying Him in praise.

Today, let us not forget who He has ordained us to be. Let us not forget that our family of God extends far beyond our front yard fences. We are a people of global influence. We are a people of many nations. We are the people of the one true God.
