A Song In The Night

Pastor Ken Crow

Psalm 77:5-7 (King James Version)

5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.

6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.

7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?

This morning I will title this message, a song in the night. It is clear from reading Psalm:77 that the author is experiencing a very dark and troubled time in his life.

Psalm 77

1I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.

2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

At times in life we may walk through deep valleys . The grip of the cold dark night may seem endless. Remember the man who wrote this Psalm was labeled by God himself as man after his own heart.

Sometimes we seem to expect that we will avoid the low spots in life but the Word is full of Godly people who experienced times of trouble.

But this morning there is encouragement from the Word of God.

1. This night will not last forever.

Psalm 30:5 (King James Version)

5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Listen here to the words of Job in the midst of his peril.

Job 29:2-4 (King James Version)

2Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;

3When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;

4As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle;

2. You are not alone in the night.

God hears your song.

Psalm 77

1I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.

Even in his plight David knew God had not abandoned him.

Oh that blessed assurance that Jesus sticketh closer than a brother. In Matthew 28:20 Jesus makes you and I a promise.

lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

In the 23rd Psalm maybe David himself said it best.

Psalm 23 (King James Version)

Psalm 23

1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

3. The night has a purpose.

Allow me to share with you two scriptures in Genesis.

Genesis 1:5

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
