Bible Study & Devotional Day 95
Guiding Scripture: Psalm 77:1-20
🔴Does God Fail to Act?
written by: Torrie Slaughter
It’s a curious thing when we desire mercy for ourselves but don’t want God to extend it to others.
As you read Psalm 77:1-20, think about your experiences, both private and professional. Ask yourself if your inaction or confusion is a delay tactic or a cover-up. What I know for sure is that we cannot hide from God. The truth will rise, and it may reveal we weren’t innocent victims. May the eyes of your heart be opened to not travel down the same path or continue the same sin differently.
Focus on God’s past actions as you make choices that will affect your family, business, ministry, or organization. Will our Lord be pleased?
The Psalmist asked if:
- The Lord rejected him forever.
- If God would ever be kind to him.
- Did the Lord remove His love?
- Had His promises permanently failed?
- Did God forget to be gracious?
- Has the Lord slammed the door on His compassion?
As we read verses 7-9, we may wonder if God is still with us. The world is sick and in need of healing.
But what can we do?
We can love the Lord our God and our neighbor as ourselves. Do what is expected and leave the rest to our Lord. When we cooperate with the Holy Spirit, we glorify our heavenly Father. Be encouraged to give with joy and pray for those who lack understanding. Instead of wondering if God has failed, look to the ways He has shown up in your life. Be obedient and do your part to assist in the timeliness of your circumstance.
