Have you ever compiled a list of all of the things God has done for you? If you’re a Christian, He’s saved you and you’re going to Heaven for eternity. He’s forgiven you of your sins and given you the power to defeat them. The list could just start there and go on and on.
It’s important to remember all of these blessings when things aren’t going so well, like they are in the world nowadays. Maybe your marriage is hurting or you’re having problems paying the bills because you lost your job during this pandemic. But if God has been there for you in the past, won’t He also be there for you in the future?
This is a trap the writer of this Psalm, Asaph, fell into a lot. He always looked around at the wicked and saw them prospering and it hindered his faith for a time. Then he would remember the Lord and His promises, along with His past actions, and it would restore his soul.
Is the Lord for you or against you? Make a list, I think the answer is clear.
Thanking the Lord for all His benefits,
Pastor Ron Kitchell
