The enemy here can take on many faces. It can be fear of the unknown, anxiety over the COVID virus, grief and loss from losing a loved one, depression from receiving a terminal disease diagnosis, or watching someone you dearly love slowly die. Whatever it may be, the result is exhaustion of mind, body, and soul…where just existing is a difficult task. That’s when verse 5 gives us direction and hope…”I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all Your works and consider what Your hands have done.” When we are in distress it can be very healing to reflect – going over and over in our mind – the mighty and gracious works of God from the past. But not just remembering, but declaring them out loud or to ourselves. It may not change the circumstances around us, but internally and spiritually, the darkness and despair can be lifted as we lift our eyes to the Lord and remember.
