Have you ever been crying out to God about a horrible circumstance? Asaph, the writer of Psalm 77 was. However, after considering what occurred, he began to reflect on God’s love. To the memories of what He has done. To His marvelous deeds of old. To the comfort of God’s faithfulness and mercy. To reminders of God’s wonders and greatness. To His strength and redemption.

Despair is real in this life and answers do not come easily. Yet in the darkness, as we remember God’s glory, majesty, power and love – our despair can slowly subside.

Remembering the past can bring hope to the present.
