Psalm 77

Continue reading Psalm 77

When our hearts are troubled, it can sometimes be hard to find God in it all. It is in our flesh to be wholly concerned with ourselves and our circumstances. We often dwell on all that is going on in our lives and forget to dwell on the goodness of the Lord. This Psalm is a good reminder of the importance of remembering the Lord through every circumstance. 

Psalm 77 is full of questions and doubts. If we take the time to look at these and think about them, we will soon realize that they go against God’s character. This may be easy to see and recognize from an outside perspective, but from the writer’s perspective, God appeared to have forgotten about them. 

In verses 10-20, we see a switch in the writer’s perspective. It is like they have been suddenly reminded that God is good.

I love verses 11-15:

“I shall remember the deeds of the Lord;

I will certainly remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your work,

And on Your deeds with thanksgiving. Your way, God, is holy; What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders;

You have made known Your strength among the peoples. By Your power You have redeemed Your people, The sons of Jacob and Joseph.” 

What an amazing reminder of God’s true character and how amazing the God we serve is. When our hearts are troubled, this is the attitude we need to take. When we are dealing with doubts and questions, the best way to combat this is with the truth. We can remind ourselves that whatever we face in our lives, our God cares and is walking with us. 

Matthew 6:26-28, 30

“Look at the birds of the sky, that they do not sow, nor reap, nor gather crops into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more important than they? And which of you by worrying can add a single day to his life’s span? And why are you worried about clothing? Notice how the lilies of the field grow; they do not labour nor do they spin thread for cloth. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you?”
