Psalm 106:8 says “He saved them for the sake of His name, that He might make His power known”
What a statement. Psalm 106 is a psalm of thanksgiving for the deliverance the Lord gave to Israel. It speaks of how God’s people have “sinned like our fathers” and “have committed iniquity” and “have behaved wickedly”. These people were “rebellious” and “did not remember His abundant kindnesses”.
The people of God were acting in a way that did not honor the Lord, they were self-serving and were spiritually cold. What did the Lord do to them? Verse 8 tells us: “Nevertheless He saved them for the sake of His name, that He might make His power known.”
