I'm doing a Bible study with a young married girl from church. We have started going through Loving God with All Your Mind. I was reading in chapter 5 this morning and it was on thinking on what is true (Phil. 4:8) in regards to the past. Elisabeth George was warning her readers that dwelling on the "I should have" of the past will only lead to discontentment now.
She said to read Psalm 77, which I did. It was just the scripture I needed this morning. The entire chapter was very encouraging, but the verses that stood out to me the most are 11-13. They say:
"I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember Your wonders of old. I will ponder all Your work, and meditate on Your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God?" Ps. 77:11-13
Don't you love the question at the end? It's one of those "duh" questions. There is no god greater than our God. I'm so thankful to have a God that knows my past and my future. And He has proven His faithfulness again and again and again. I don't have to live in the "I should have" moments of the past or the "what if" moments of the future. I must do as Phil. 4:8 commands and think on what is true.
