July 17, 2019 – Psalm 77:11-13

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? Psalm 77:11-13.

This Psalm begins, I cry up to heaven, My God, True God,” and He hears.  In my darkest days, I seek the Lord. Through the night, my hands are raised up, stretched out, waiting;
And though they do not grow tired,  my soul is uneasy.” verses 1-2.  

It is when we remember we are ready to wait on the Lord.  Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand His decisions and His ways!  Romans  11:33,  

We are an impatient people, not understanding why we can’t have what we want when we want it.  The children of Israel complained as God led them away to the promised land.  They soon did not remember praising God when He led them across the Red Sea and provided Manna, Meat, and Water for them.  

But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.  The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.  2 Peter 3:8-9.  

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.  Isaiah 40:31.

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 77:14-15.
