The moment I begin to doubt God because of what I am experiencing (77:1-10) I must recall, meditate, and muse upon God and his great and gracious works (77:11-20).
God’s work that the psalmist meditated on was – of course – Israel’s Exodus out of Egypt and through the Red Sea. When Israel was seemingly trapped they doubted God, but Moses told them not to fear by to “stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today” (Exod 14:13).
When going through difficult, challenging circumstances, the minute we begin to question God’s purposes and doubt his attention, remember his past works. Meditate and muse upon them.
I shall remember the deeds of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your work and muse on Your deeds. Your way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God? (Psalm 77:11-13)
