Yes, Trouble

Psalm 77

When you think about it, hardships, trouble, tough times all describe what we should expect as we live out the Christian life, and we see that pretty clearly here in Psalm 77. Now I've lived long enough to know this--well. Even so, somehow, in the back of my mind there's still this little thought that life should be easy and carefree, and if and when I hit that rough spot, I can pray and God will fix it. Well that's not reality. It's not what God's Word tells us. So when I allow myself to indulge in this thinking, it pulls me off track from God and that, in turn, typically leads to disappointment and discouragement.

So how can we use Psalm 77 to keep us on track with God and encourage us when we're in the middle of tough times? What does it tell us about taking our troubles, concerns and problems to the Lord? Tami

This Earth is not our home. If we had no troubles on earth we would be willing to stay here and give up our glorious heavenly home. When we are in distress and cry out to the Lord, He hears us. He has blessed us with many things in the past, He will do so again. His ways are always good for us, His teachings are for us. We need to watch, endure, wait upon the Lord, for He will do mighty things through us (In His time-not ours). How many times have we thought we couldn't or shouldn't have to endure a problem only to discover what a blessing that 'problem' was. Trust in God always! He is good!

To me, this Psalm reminds me that the Lord is always there for us! .... and He waits to hear from us!

At night when one awakes and cant seem to go back to sleep - is a great time to pray and seek the Lord!

Psalm 77's invitation to remember what God has already done for us is wonderful spiritual advice. The God who has already done so much in and through and for us hasn't brought us this far to leave us now, and, with His help, we can face whatever life brings our way.

Calling on God doesn't mean that God can not understand what we are going through, He rather want to see how obedient we are to Him. He cares, it a mater of Faith and be patience to wait upon him.
