Half the battle is knowing what
you like and Who you believe in.

Psalm 77

Hebrews 4:15 - For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. (NKJV)

Psalm 77:10 - And I said, “This is my anguish; But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.” (NKJV)

(v.2) Life is so hard right now I can't even sleep and nothing seems to comfort me... but I will remember all the good things the Lord has done and all the wonders of God from the past (v.11).

(v.3) I just can't take it anymore. I don't think I can handle anything else going wrong... but I will remember everything that God has done for me and I will tell others about it (v.12).

(v.4) I can't rest or sleep; I'm so upset and discouraged I can't even find the right words to describe it... but I will remember that You O God are holy and great and there is none like You (v.13).

(v. 5) Things used to be so much better than they are now... but I will remember that You are a God of wonders and strength (v.14).

(v.6) When I think about the happy times of the past it only makes me sad because I am having so many problems right now... but I will remember that the Lord has redeemed me and saved my soul (v.15).

(v.7) God, are you there? Have you forgotten me? Are you going to help me?... but I will remember that even the winds and water obey Your very word and they tremble at the sound of your voice (v.16).

(v.8) Lord, don't You care about me anymore? I'm trusting in the promises of Your Word but it doesn't seem like You are fulfilling them... but I will remember that all of heaven and earth do Your bidding; even the rain and lightning fall at Your command (v.17).

(v.9) God, it seems like You are withholding all Your kindness from me. Are you mad at me? Have I made You angry. It sure seems like it... but I will remember how powerful You are and that Your ways are so great and so holy that it is beyond me to comprehend how You do things (v.18-19).
