I don’t remember my fleece sheets being so fuzzy prickly when I put them away in the spring. Does this mean they are worn out? There are no holes or worn patches but they are slightly scratchy, at least on one side. I guess I can ‘turn the other cheek’ so to speak and put them on wrong side up!
The psalmist, Asaph must have been sleeping on prickly sheets when he wrote these lines.
Will the Lord walk off and leave us for good? Will he never smile again?
Is his love worn threadbare? Has his salvation promise burned out?
Has God forgotten his manners? Has he angrily stalked off and left us?
“Just my luck,” I said. “The High God goes out of business just the moment I need him.” (Psalm 77: 7-10, MSG)
When Asaph turned his ‘sheets’ other side up, he remembered the truths that God’s ways are holy and our God rescues us. (Psalm 77:13-15)
Prayer- Lord, when our attitude gets fuzzy, remind us to turn it right side up into your truth. Amen.
