The Comfort of God’s Past

In Psalm 77, Asaph is wailing out loud in distress, deeply troubled by the fact God hasn’t answered him yet. Does God no longer save His children? But as he meditates, he decides to appeal to God based on the years of God’s right hand. He remembers that God has been in the business of saving far longer than any of His children have been crying out to Him! Asaph reassures his own soul by recalling God’s past as a mighty deliverer who will shake heaven and earth in order to preserve His people. When his eyes move from himself to God, he moves from doubt to trust. As you come to worship today, let your meditations take you along this same path.
