Devotional by Wes McGarry
In the midst of troubling times it is easy to ask the question, “God, where are you?” Asaph asked this question in great detail in Psalm 77 with phrases such as “I sought the Lord, and I refused to be comforted.” “I think of God; I groan; I meditate; my spirit becomes weak.” “Will the Lord reject forever and never again show favor?” “Has his love ceased?” “Has God forgotten to be gracious?” This resulted in the psalmist conclusion about God in verse 10 which reads So I say, “I am grieved that the right hand of the Most High has changed.” After drawing this conclusion one can find what actions were taken, I will remember the Lord’s works; yes, I will remember your ancient wonders. I will reflect on all you have done and meditate on your actions. The psalmist reflected on what God had done to get him through the horrible situation they were facing. You also, might be facing difficult situations but remember how God pulled you through in the past, and he will do it again.
