The Choices
 
Psalm 77:10-12
10 Then I thought, “To this I ________ appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
11 I _______ remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I ______ remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I ______ consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”
  • What word indicates the author is making choices? How many times is it repeated? Say out loud each word that follows the fill-in-the-blank word "will." 1. appeal 2. remember 3. remember 4. consider 
  • What can we do-- How can we choose-- when feelings overwhelm us?
  • List some times you remember from your own past when God helped you?
  • (Note: Sometimes feelings of anger and/or abandonment can block our memories. If this happens, pray --appeal-- and ask God very specifically to help you. Then, over the next several days expect something to trigger your memory. On the other hand, you might need know you are in a forgiven and accepted relationship with God first. If so, please talk to your pastor, spiritual advisor, or email me at WCplace@gmail.com to be shown from the Bible what it means to believe).  

Psalm 77:10-12
10 Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand.
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

  1. I remember the time when God quieted me. I had prayed for my tears to please stop. I wanted peace and some time out from the constant crying. I knew His Presence was around me when I felt so peaceful for the first time since I lost my husband. Also, years before, I felt God's intervention when a sustained and very high fever from painful nonstop chilling and shaking finally broke enroute to the hospital. My husband was driving and I knew at that moment when the fever broke that I was okay, that it was over, and he could drive us home. I knew also that God had cured me, I had not received any medications. I will remember His works. There are many other times I realize God was holding me by my hand. May I never forget when I knew God was there.

  2. Something that caught my eye was the statement about God's right hand. I wanted to find out what that meant so upon my digging I found that it's a symbol of power, protection, His presence, victory, His saving power, defeat over enemies, mighty works and where Christ sits.. on the right hand of God the Father. To apply to my life, I will remember His protection over my life, His ever abiding presence, His saving power from death, the many mighty works He has done over the years and will continue to do for me now as a widow. Knowing this brings me great comfort!!
