Psalm 44 begins as many psalms do, by praising and glorifying God, followed by a confession of faith and fidelity. The Psalmist then records an unusual complaint: God’s people have been rejected and abandoned, even though they have been faithful to God. This should immediately remind us both of Job in Israel’s past, and Jesus in Israel’s future. All three stories converge in bold cries to God: “Wake up, God! Why are you sleeping? Rise up; come and help us!” This is a call that God has often heard, and one that He loves to hear. So as you come to worship, come calling on God to arise and deliver His faithful people, for the sake of His steadfast love.
