And I said, “This is my fate;
the Most High has turned his hand against me.”
But then I recall all you have done, O Lord;
I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. Ps. 77:10-11

Circumstances sometimes cause us to feel like God has abandoned us or even aimed misfortune our way. But He has created a powerful history of compassion, mercy, and grace towards us in Christ. It is likely that we won’t have to look too far back in our lives to recognize some of God’s wonderful deeds done on our behalf.

Lord, help me process every circumstance I face with the knowledge that You are for me, not against me.
