That is not a new or unique experience for those who are committed to follow the Lord. Asaph was one who questioned. He questioned to the point that he was wondering if the Lord had changed. How did he recover? Did he recover? Can we when we face the same thing?
Look at Psalm 77:10 – 15 (here @ Bible Gateway). Asaph chose to remember and think through the following truths about his Lord:
- I will remember the deeds of the Lord
- I will meditate on all Your work
- I will muse on Your deeds
- Your way is holy
- You work wonders
- You have made known your strength
- You have redeemed
I have written about this before, but when we face difficulty, it is easy to forget. It is easy to allow our focus to rest solely on our current “reality”. What we need to do is what Asaph did, choose to remember His work, and choose to remember His attributes.
However, as I have suggested in the past, we seem to have, or at least I do have problems with short and long term memory. We forget. One answer, journal. If you write it down, you can review what God has done in your life.
