Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 77

Good Morning World!

Psalm 77 - A Psalm of Asaph

If we would take the Psalms written by Asaph and separate them into their own book we would have a very interesting word picture painted.  Asaph brings a different set of emotional experiences to the table.  His experiences seem to be quite different to those of David, and this chapter is not any different.

Have you ever asked the question, "Where is God?"  or, "God where are you?"

Have you ever wondered why God allows the world to go the way it is going?

So, does Asaph.  He asks this question over and over again through more than half this scripture.  Has God left us?  Is God so angry at us that He is refusing to show mercy anymore?  Has God forsaken us?  The questions keep pouring from the soul of this great singer.

The interesting part is Asaph doesn't come up with an answer.  God doesn't shower down a revelation into the situation, nor does He reveal His plan to Asaph.  Rather Asaph decides that God is still good, worthy and awesome, and begins to remember what God did for him and Israel in the past.  In remembering what God is really like, and remembering God's greatness in the past Asaph begins to praise and worship again.  This praise and worship leads to testimony and soul winning because no matter what you are going through right now God is still good, and He still cares for you!

So praise Him for what He has done, and Jesus will make Himself real to you again!

Yours for the Sacrifice of Praise,
Pastor Fred
