Psalm 77:11-12 ” I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember Your miracles of long ago. I will meditate on all Your works and consider all Your mighty deeds.”

Many times when we’re in the middle of a medical emergency, traumatic incident, or sudden personal peril…we know the Lord is with us, but it’s not until much later that we realize just what the Lord had done. It’s at that moment the Lord will bring into remembrance His extraordinary acts done on our behalf that we had no idea were happening around us. And as we ponder and meditate on these wondrous actions several things happen. First will be the profound gratitude we have for a God Who loves us so much He takes care of us when we can’t care for ourselves. Second will be the increased faith and trust we have for Him, knowing He works everything for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28) And finally, as this Psalm attests, as we remember all these mighty deeds and works of the Lord, they become like stones piled up upon each other that we can stand on to boldly face the next calamity that will come into our life.
