“I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old” (Psalms 77:11).
Text: Psalm 77:1-12.
Distress according to Cambridge International Dictionary of English is, “A great mental or physical suffering, such as extreme sadness, worry or pain, or the state of being in great danger and therefore in urgent need of help.” This definition conforms to the experience of the Psalmist in our text. He was so troubled that he could not sleep. However, he sought the Lord, remembered God’s previous good deeds, His wonders of old, and was comforted. Our world today is ravaged by deadly diseases, famine, crime, moral decadence, and economic, political and educational instability. Youths are not exempted from these problems. Are you presently going through a time of distress?
Dear friend, in your time of challenges and distress, remember God’s past deeds. Remember His previous interventions in your life and His faithfulness to you. Recall God’s goodness to you in time past and humbly turn to Him in prayer with unwavering faith. Trust His willingness and His ability to intervene in your situation. He will come to your aid and grant you victory. Surely, great testimonies will be yours.
God has done it before; He will do it again.
He will come to your aid
Prayer for today
In distress, help me Lord to remember your past faithfulness.
