I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Psalm 77:11-12
There are times in the lives of people when God is silent. They are going through difficult times that do not seem to end. The world seems to be winning the battle.
At these times, the world likes to say that God does not really exist, or is not really in control. Believers begin to wonder if they really had ever heard God speak before and if the world may be correct. Many will spend hours crying out to God for an answer, lying awake during the night in fear as they cry out to God.
Others will start to blame themselves for God being so silent. They will confess sins and ask to be forgiven on sins that had been confessed a dozen times. They may begin to question whether they are really believers or not.
The psalmist in this passage had some of those same questions. He wondered whether God would reject them forever or not. He questioned whether God had failed in His promises or not. These are the same questions people ask to this day.
However, the psalmist then says that He will remember the deeds and miracles God had done in the past. He will then focus and meditate on those good things.
There will come times in your life when you feel that God has rejected you. God will be silent and appear to be leaving you all on your own. You may be crying out to God for help and appearing to get no answer.
When these times occur, turn your focus on who God is and what He has done. Read the Bible and learn how others had times where God was silent. Learn how there were times when God seemed far away. Yet, God always fulfilled His promises.
God will not reject you. You have to be the one to walk away. During these times, God may be testing you to build your trust in Him higher. If you read the Bible, you know that God will never leave or forsake you, and that He will always fulfill His promises. Now stand on that and meditate on those things that God had done in your life.
God will speak again at the right time.
I pray today that you will know God’s presence in your life; that you will trust God is with you; that you will meditate on what God has done for you; and that you will remember all that God has done.
