Psalm 44: This psalm’s author could easily have been Job. The sons of Korah acknowledged the hand of God for their prosperity and are confused by the change of fortune. They claim they had not forgotten God or his covenant and like Job they did not lose their integrity even as they cried, “…redeem us because of your unfailing love” (v. 26). A great lesson in trusting God.
Psalm 44:26 Arise for our help and redeem us for thy mercies’ sake.
We should always remember what God has done for us because it is easy to forget about God and His grace when we are facing troubles. More importantly, we should praise God continually, for He deserves all praise (v. 7-8). –
