"I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord; I will remember your wonders of old."


This is another Psalm which was written by Asaph, a musician who served in King David’s court. He is known for his beautiful and inspirational music, which was inspired by his deep understanding of Scripture.

Psalm 77 refers to "God’s Mighty Deeds Recalled.” It is very much based on “remembering” what God has done. The psalm begins with a cry of distress: the psalmist has been experiencing profound difficulties, and the cries to God appear to have been ignored; in the first half of the Psalm, only memories of the past seem to bring anything even resembling hope and joy. However, in the second half of the psalm, the psalmist then truly remembers God's integrity and realises that the failure of his hopes is the result of misplaced expectations of God's actions, rather than God's failure to act. Remembering God's actions, he concludes with praise of "the God who works wonders" (verse 14).

God does not always provide explanations for difficulties, but He does provide the promises of his Word. The next time you find yourself in the middle of a discouraging situation, bring your own questions and concerns to Him in prayer. Rely on the promises of his Word. Trust that God knows your needs and will meet them.

Asaph asks plenty of questions in this Psalm and it is through questioning and thinking through issues and listening to the Lord’s voice that he finally grasps the eternal truth that God’s faithfulness weaves through the past and present of all generations.
Like Asaph, may you come to the point of realisation that “What god is so great as our God?”


1. FIND A Relaxing PLACE. 

Make sure that you are in a quiet place. Sit comfortably but alert – feet flat on the floor, back pushed hard against the back of the chair. Start your reflection by being open and ready to God’s presence.

2. Focus on your breathing.

Focus on your breathing. Pay attention to in-breaths and out-breaths. You may think of breathing in God’s life and peace and breathing out any tension.

3. Be aware of your body.

Be aware of your body. Let your aches and pains be there. Rest your hands in your lap; you don’t need to be doing anything with them now. Rest your feet on the floor; you don’t need to go anywhere. Shrug your shoulders, ease your neck. Take time to become still and repeat verse 11 to yourself. You may even want to sit outside and remember God’s goodness to you. If you are dealing with a particularly difficult situation at the moment, try and recall how God sustained you in the past and ask Him to make Himself near to you again.

4. Listen to God 

In the stillness, listen to what God might be saying to you.

5.  Listen to this song

Listen to this wonderful song “How Great is our God” by Chris Tomlin to finalise your thoughts.

6. Finish with this prayer:

Great God, you led and saved us through all ages, do not forget us now in our times of trouble, but raise up your power and sustain the poor and helpless, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
