"I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your wonders of old."

~ Psalm 77:11


Psalm 77 presents another picture of the reality of life for a believer in this broken, fallen, sinful world.  We can be sure, trouble will come (v.2).  In fact, trouble may surround and at times trouble may overwhelm (v.4).  Our nights may be long (v.2), our soul may refuse to be comforted (v.2), our spirit may faint (v.3).  We might question God in the midst of our travails (v.7-9).  But God is still the God of old (v.5,11).  We can and should remember him and what he has done for us (v.6,11)  We must make our appeal to him (v.1,10).  He will never leave us or forsake us (Deut. 31:8, Is. 41:10, Matt. 28:20).  His character, his words and his works remain unchanged and forever faithful (v.12-18).  It is he who safely leads us as a shepherd through all of our troubles (v.19-20; Ps.23).

Believer, I ask you, “What god is great like our God?”
