Psalm 77

God can change our way by giving us a new perspective; offering us a new vista of hope for each new day. We have a fresh start with the difference maker Christ giving rise to a victorious finish.

Each year, my church has a “God and Country” service for July 4th. As I listen to the patriotic music, I realize that freedom is so important. It’s the same with Christianity as we receive freedom from things like fear, weakness, and doubt. The video below: Take Me Higher – Lincoln Brewster  gives that feeling of freedom and appreciation. My hope is that it inspires you as you spend this day with God.

The psalmist in Psalm 77 is in continual despair but after considering the mighty works of God in former times is lifted higher. Consideration is given to when Moses led the people through the sea and then through the wilderness into the Promised Land. This memory encouraged the psalmist and it can encourage us today and into the future. Times of trouble are times that we should seek God in prayer. When doubt is working inside, suppress it with the remembrance of the works of God and the ultimate remedy; His own Son who He gave for us all.

Today, I’m going to God in prayer with thankfulness for His promises. He can turn a down day upside down and create a wonderful day as we spend it with Him. If you have times where you feel a little down, remember that no matter what happens in life, God loves you and that is all that matters.

This day with God will be amazing because we will be able to share about why it was amazing and this may lift someone higher for an amazing tomorrow.
