Then I thought, “To this I will appeal; the years of the right hand of the Most High.” (Psalm 77:10 NIV)
This verse serves as a bridge from the lament in verse 9, taking the hymn in a completely new direction. “God’s right hand” implies the hand of God’s power, protection, preservation, deliverance, and defense. In the midst of the psalmist’s lament, God directs his attention away from himself to His right hand that will hold, shield, and protect him. For nine verses, the psalmist has been living like many Christians today—in subjectivity. Yet it is dangerous to build faith on feelings. How do you step out? With the objectivity of faith in a God who’s always there.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
