6I said, “Let me remember my song in the night;
let me meditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7“Will the Lord spurn forever,
and never again be favorable?
8Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his promises at an end for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has he in anger shut up his compassion?”
When we hear these words we need to pause.
We join in the psalmist’s search.
We remember God’s goodness towards us.
Because if we are not now,
someday we may find ourselves in the dark,
awake and wondering,
“Has God forgotten me?”
As a follower of Jesus our worship,
our declaration of His immense worth,
is not based on how good today is,
but on how good God is, always.
My memory in the difficult days
can move me forward to Him in hope
as I recollect the stories of His faithfulness
from the “good days.”
