What can help us in this pandemic? Every day we are bombarded with grim news. We hear the number of cases and the number of deaths. The cases and deaths in our area are even more disturbing. The economic effects are painful and frightening. The long-term effects on our liberties are terrifying. Socially distancing from family and friends intensifies the emotions. What can we do in these times?
The psalmist Asaph gives us a good pattern in Psalm 77. He began the psalm in weariness and despair (verses 1-10). He ended the psalm in confident trust. What made the difference? What can we learn from Him?
First, we need to remember God’s past works. In verses 11-12, Asaph wrote, “I shall remember the deeds of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old. I will meditate on all Your work and muse on Your deeds.”
Child of God, think about God’s past work in your life. Remember those wonderful answers to your prayers. Think back on His provision. Remember His intervention in all those circumstances and events. God was sufficient in all those situations. He is sufficient for this pandemic.
Next, remember God’s character. Our God is perfect. There is not a spot or blemish in His character or conduct. He is unlimited in every way. Asaph wrote, “Your way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders: You have made known Your strength among the peoples” (v.13-14). Asaph knew God and knew that such a God could be trusted. If we would stop and consider the wonder and perfection of our Lord, we would have no reason to fear.
Last, Asaph remembered God’s deep, personal love for His people. In verse 15 he wrote, “You have by Your power redeemed Your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph.” Asaph concludes the psalm in verse 20 by writing, “You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.” We serve a God who has loved us from eternity past to eternity future (Jeremiah 31:3) as His beloved children (1 John 3:1). How can we not trust such a One?
Yes, these are difficult days. But we, serve a God who is so great and wonderful. We can completely trust Him.
