Psalm 77

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;

And I remembered my songs in the night. My heart meditated and my spirit asked:

“Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favour again?

Has his unfailing love vanished forever? 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.”

Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?

You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.

With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.

The waters saw you, God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed.

The clouds poured down water, the heavens resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth.

Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked.

Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.

You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Psalms 77:1‭-‬20 NIV

  1. I couldn’t agree more!
    Whenever we appreciate what we have, in my humble opinion, it is a good way to recognize and glorify the Lord. It only means that we are grateful for everything that He supplies our lives everyday.
    This is a sweet and insightful devotional. I used to do this in my own blog. But I am determined to revive it in my newly set up law school website. After all, law students need to get closer with the Lord too, so we can be blessed with wisdom and guidance to become the most just lawyers that we could ever be.
    Thank you, AJ, for sharing this. Pagpalain ka ng Maykapal because you are using your blog as an instrument to propagate the Word of God.

    1. Exactly! I hope even if you don’t get to revive it on your blog that you’d have time to do it on your own maybe? Law school can be pretty daunting. Hehe

      Thank you very much po for reading this short devotional and taking the time to comment. May God be with you always and bless you too ✨

  2. Yes, AJ. Everyday. Importante, kahit walang nagbabasa or nakatingin, alam ni Lord na hindi ka nakakalimot pasalamatan at purihin siya. Keep this up, AJ! God bless you always. ❤
