Do It Again Lord, Do It Again

Devotional Thought From Psalm 44:1-5


Psalm 44:1–5

To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil.

1  We have heard with our ears, O God,

Our fathers have told us,

What work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them;

How thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

3  For they got not the land in possession by their own sword,

Neither did their own arm save them:

But thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance,

Because thou hadst a favour unto them.

4  Thou art my King, O God:

Command deliverances for Jacob.

5  Through thee will we push down our enemies:

Through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.


I read somewhere that in the Methodist church building where the founder of the Salvation Army William Booth was converted, there was a plaque that was hung to commemorate what the Lord had done. The minister that served that congregation was walking through the building and saw a man standing in front of that plaque and asked if he could be of any assistance. I read that the minister was asked, “Can a man say his prayers in here?” and replied, “of course”. The man fell to his knees and lifted his hands toward Heaven and cried out, “Do it again Lord, do it again!”

“Do it again Lord, Do it again!”

That is the gist of the God inspired author of Psalm 44. He begins his psalm recounting the great victories of in the lives of his forefathers. He acknowledges that these victories did not come because of his ancestors’ smarts, strength or skill. The great things were accomplished by the wisdom, power and intervention of God. One great thing to remember about our Lord is that he doesn’t change. His divine attributes don’t diminish. What he could do in the past, he can do again!

Malachi 3:6
6  For I am the Lord, I change not;
Therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

The God of the past is the psalmist’s God too. So, with confidence the author cries out in verses 4-5,

Psalm 44:4–5
4  Thou art my King, O God:
Command deliverances for Jacob.
5  Through thee will we push down our enemies:
Through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

Is he not crying out the sentiment of that man in the little meeting house?

Do it again Lord, do it again!

I like this Psalmist need to see the God of the past work in my present, so I pray it.

Do it again Lord, do it again!

I am assured that he can because he is not the great I WAS, he is the great I AM!

I long to see Jesus heal people who have a contagious, life threatening disease like he did so often when he walked the shores of Galilee don’t you? So, I pray

Do it again Lord, do it again!

I believe that prayer is possible because his Word says,


Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8

He can still save!

He can still heal!

He can still improve lives!

He did it before. He can do it again! So, together let’s pray it…


Do it again Lord, do it again!
