Daily Fountain 2017 - Meditate On God's Interventions

Sunday February 19

Bible Reading:     Psalms 77: 1 - 15

Topic:         Meditate On God's Interventions

The Psalmist complained of problems. It was so bad that he almost gave up hope or expectation of a better tomorrow. But he took courage to hope for a better day by meditating on how God had intervened in the troubles of His people in the past.

He therefore concluded that God could change and would never keep quiet forever. He would surely help him out of his troubles.

He did not complain to man but to God, he sought God earnestly. It was after many vocal prayers that he counted the past blessings and found courage in such meditation.

What do you do when trouble comes?
When you are surrounded with many problems or a very heavy one, what becomes of your Christian attitude?
Have you made the mistake of complaining to men instead of going to God in prayer?
Have you forgotten so soon all that the Mighty Hands of God had done for you in the past?
If you forget God's past interventions when you encounter problems, you will lose courage.

Learn to seek God while in trouble and build your hope around what He had done in the past, appreciating Him and testifying to His wonders.

My Father and My God, teach me to learn how to appreciate You for the good things You had done in my life in times past so that I may receive more good things for the present and the future, Amen

Memory verse:   Psalms 77: 9
"Hath God forgotten to be gracious? Hath He in anger shut up His tender mercies?"
