Have You Forgotten? (Psalm 77:1-20)Bro. Mike Meade, February 25, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When we think of the book of Psalms we usually think about King David and the many soulful and heartfelt psalms that he penned. But this morning we are going to examine a psalm of Asaph, the worship leader.
Though he was a leader in the church, Asaph was facing a season of discouragement. But by the end of the psalm, his heart has turned and he begins rejoicing and praising God. So why the change in tone?
Asaph remembered. He remembered all the times God had come through for him and the things that He had done for him in the past.
Maybe you find yourself downtrodden this morning. Maybe you're discouraged. Have you forgotten? Make a decision in your heart. I will remember...

1I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me. 2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. 3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah. 4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. 6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. 7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more? 8Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore? 9Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah. 10And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High. 11I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. 12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. 13Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God? 14Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people. 15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah. 16The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled. 17The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad. 18The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. 19Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known. 20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron. (KJV)
