I Will Remember - Day 42

Psalm 69:22 - Psalm 89:13
          The Psalmist in chapter 77 is coming to the Lord with a song of trouble and complaint (vs. 3).
          He is wondering where God is and "is his mercy clean gone for ever?" (vs. 7)

          Then  says that is my problem but God is still God and he is still good.

"And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron." Psalm 77:10-20

         Because of the cross and Jesus's sacrifice I am able to boldly go to the throne of God and pray my heart and my feelings out no matter what they are. What I need to come back to in the end is that God is God. He is almighty and good. He has wisdom to know what is best for me and gives me blessings and strength before I even know what or how to ask. I need to remember that. It is about God. It is not about me.
