I remembered God, and was troubled. (Ps. 77:3).
One would expect to read, “I remembered God and was comforted.” But remembering God may sometimes make us unhappy. As a truant child remembers his parents and dreads their discipline, so when we go astray we remember that evil doing brings consequences.
The kind of trouble the remembrance of God brings is trouble that leads through tears to triumph. May God stir up our minds by way of remembrance, lest we forget Him too long!
