927. Verse of the week from Keith Beauchemin:

Psalm 77:1

"I cried out to God with my voice --
To God with my voice;
And He gave ear to me."

God's ear is always ready to hear the cries of his children.  If you read verses 
2-10 you will see that the psalmist was in despair.  He questioned whether God's 
mercy had ceased, his promises had failed (vs 7) and whether God had forgotten 
to be gracious.  He believed that God had not heard his prayers.  

What changed?  What gave him hope again?  He remembered God's past works of 
redemption (vs 11-20).  Then he began to see that GoD was magnificent and 

Our present circumstances can often warp our perception of God.  If we look at 
God's past works of redemption in the lives of his people and in our own life, 
then we will again start to marvel at the greatness of our God.  Then we realize 
that he does hear the cries of his people and so in faith I must believe that he 
hears my cries.

Peace and blessings to you,
