    Through the centuries the Psalms have been read and loved by Christian people largely because they reflect the experience of men and women in the life of faith. In times of struggle and persecution, in times of deep personal distress, in times of great overflowing joy, there is nothing like the Psalms to match the experience of the heart. That is why this book has been the most loved of all books of the Old Testament. I have chosen Psalm 77 for our study because I have found so many people today facing exactly the same problem that this psalm faces.

    The Unthinkable Thought  ( Psalm 77:11-12 )  Sunday Message

    You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.

    We have discovered that the man who wrote Psalm 77 went through an experience which many of us have had, or will have at some time or another in living the life of faith. Here is a man who faced a very distressing circumstance (which is never named for us) which sent him flying to God for help. He tells how he prayed and wept and tried to meditate on God all night long, but, to his great distress, he received no help at all from God. Apparently the lines were all down; the skies were as brass. As a consequence, doubts began to rise in his heart.

    Obtaining God's Help  ( Psalm 77:11-13 )  Daily Devotion

    Out of the Depths  ( Psalm 77:16-20 )  Sunday Message

    When the waters saw thee, O God,
      when the waters saw thee, they were afraid,
      yea, the deep trembled.
    The clouds poured out water;
      the skies gave forth thunder;
      thy arrows flashed on every side.
    The crash of thy thunder was in the whirlwind;
      thy lightnings lighted up the world;
      the earth trembled and shook.
    Thy way was through the sea,
      thy path through the great waters;
      yet thy footprints were unseen.
