I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.You with your arm redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph. Psalm 77:11-15
And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26
Pressure does funny things to a guy. Spend a few minutes watching a playoff game, a tense moment at work, or any other type of challenging circumstance and you’ll see men act in uncharacteristic ways. When the heat is turned up, an odd thing tends to happen: forgetfulness. In the heat of a mental battle, what used to be routine action becomes a difficult task. Psalm 77 gives us a clear remedy.
This psalm begins with a description of a cry in “the day of my trouble.” While the exact cause is uncertain, the effect is noticeable. This man is suffering a great deal of internal tension over an external event. How does he handle it? He remembers. Calling to mind and searching out the acts of an All Mighty God bring about a level of unrivaled comfort. In the midst of any difficulty, don’t forget that God is unchanging. Has He been faithful to you in the past? Think it over and meditate on the times of God’s great work in your life.
DO THIS TODAY: Recall and think on one great way you’ve seen God.
