Monday

Read Psalm 77:1-2 and 11-20

I cry aloud to God;
I cry aloud, and he hears me.
2In times of trouble I pray to the Lord;
all night long I lift my hands in prayer,
but I cannot find comfort.

11I will remember your great deeds, Lord;
I will recall the wonders you did in the past.
12I will think about all that you have done;
I will meditate on all your mighty acts.
13Everything you do, O God, is holy.
No god is as great as you.
14You are the God who works miracles;
you showed your might among the nations.
15By your power you saved your people,
the descendants of Jacob and of Joseph.
16When the waters saw you, O God, they were afraid,
and the depths of the sea trembled.
17The clouds poured down rain;
thunder crashed from the sky,
and lightning flashed in all directions.
18The crash of your thunder rolled out,
and flashes of lightning lit up the world;
the earth trembled and shook.
19You walked through the waves;
you crossed the deep sea,
but your footprints could not be seen.
20You led your people like a shepherd,
with Moses and Aaron in charge.

Think

The first 10 verses of Psalm 77 describe someone battling with doubts and worries.  Verses 11-20 are that person's resolve to remember what God has done in the past.  In this memory - he finds comfort.

Pray

When I struggle in the present help me to remember your faithfulness in the past.
