Verse of the Day 7-11-22

I cried out to God for help;
I cried out to God to hear me.
When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
at night I stretched out untiring hands,
and I would not be comforted.
I remembered you, God, and I groaned;
I meditated, and my spirit grew faint.
You kept my eyes from closing;
I was too troubled to speak.
I thought about the former days,
the years of long ago;
I remembered my songs in the night.
My heart meditated and my spirit asked:
“Will the Lord reject forever?
Will he never show his favor again?
Has his unfailing love vanished forever?
Has his promise failed for all time?
Has God forgotten to be merciful?
Has he in anger withheld his compassion? ”
Then I thought, “To this I will appeal:
the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
I will consider all your works
and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Psalm 77:1-12

These twelve verses in this particular psalm describe a person in deep trouble who cried out to God but felt that God was not responding (vv. 7-9). If we find ourselves in a similar situation, we should do as this psalmist did: continue to call on God day and night (vv. 1-2) while remembering all the ways God has shown us his love in the past (vv. 11-12). Because of what God did for us through his Son, Jesus, we now have the assurance that “he who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all-how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)
