King David is believed to be the author of this Psalm. The Psalm begins on a high note, KJV Psalms 77:1 I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear unto me.
Then the the mood changes to a earnest distressing call for help; KJV Psalms 77:2-4
In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
The overwhelmed Psalmist derives comfort for a moment by remembering who God is and how He has delivered His people in the past. Then David seeks to understand God's government, but that proves to be a futile exercise which ends in feelings of sadness and frustration. Because the Creator God's ways and thoughts are higher than those of His created beings.
In recognition of God's Holiness and Majesty the Psalmist declares, KJV Psalms 77:13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
We can indeed proclaim the same sentiments, so please join us on Prayers of Hope as we focus on our Great God.
