You led your people

Psalm 77: 16-20

Question for the day:  What does deliverance look like? What are the requirements that make it necessary? Initially life is good, but then, “… nothing was making sense, nothing is as it should be…” These words from our author leave me very unsettled — their mere suggestion raises my anxiety level. On the other side of anxiety, I see the power of God and that He takes action — demonstrating His care and concern.
Stand in awe, stand in joy, but stand firm …. and see the deliverance the Lord will give you.              (2 Chronicles 20:17)
  In what situation of your life can you recognize God’s deliverance?

Mighty God, we come before you with gratitude for the amazing things you do on our behalf.  Remind us that your presence goes before us leading us through that which we find most difficult. Amen.
