THE STORY OF JESUS: Proverbs 77
“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember…” (Psalm 77:11)
Asaph was struggling through something terrible.
He was desperate for help, yet his mind was plagued by doubts.
Satan loves to torment us in tough times, adding his lies to the mix.
The mind becomes a battleground, one that can be overwhelming.
But Asaph makes a decision (v.10), he chooses to remember.
He forces his mind to meditate how God has helped in the past.
What do you dwell on when you are going through a difficult time?
When Satan inserts his poisonous thoughts, do you help by adding your own?
Or do you resist the devil (like Jesus) by chasing away the lies with truth?
‘You can’t stop the birds of sorrow from landing on your head…
But you can stop them from building a nest in your hair.’
I know how negative thoughts come whether I want them or not.
But I can choose whether I will let them take root in my hair.
“I will consider and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” (Psalm 77:12)
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, my mind is a battleground. Help me not to stand idly by while Satan lobs his doubt and despair bombs at me. Help me to set my mind on You, and to let thoughts of You build a nest in my hair!
