King David Hears Psalm 77 In Powerful Clip From 'The Chosen'

When we feel discouraged, we turn to the Good Book and pray for God’s comfort. This passage was brought to life when King David hears Psalm 77 in a powerful clip from season three of ‘The Chosen.’

In a powerful wrap-up of Season Three of the hit show, King David is seated on his throne as he hears the Psalm of Asaph. As the words are read aloud to music, the show highlights the triumphs and the struggles many characters on the show face. 

In a beautiful and moving way, the Psalm reveals how God is with us through the good and the bad. It reveals God’s character, strength, sovereignty, love, and grace for those who love him. It makes the words of the Psalm come alive. As the Psalm progresses, the writer remembers God’s “wonderful deeds of long ago. He’s reminded of the great things God did in the past, including the deliverance of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. 

This beautiful Psalm begins with the writer in distress and heartbreak until we see him exchange his despair for praise, beginning in verse 14: "You are the God of great wonders!" The Psalm then ends not in celebration but focused on God’s faithfulness to those who love him in a statement of remembrance: 

Yet, Psalm 77 ends not with a celebration of God's faithfulness or with a statement of confidence in him, but simply with a statement of remembrance: "You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds.”

This Psalm is an example of our humanity. From the author of the Pslam to King David, and even our own experiences–Psalm 77 reflects our emotions, our struggles, and why faith is vital in hard times. 

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds,” Psalm 77:11-12
