Psalm 44 shows us something very important when it comes to God and our relationships with Him and others. We should have heard about the goodness of Yahweh from our parents, not the pastor or the neighbor next door.
If we are parents then it is our responsibility to tell our children how great our God is and why He deserves to be praised, worshipped and adored. We need to tell them how God brought us out of our mess, how He saved our lives when we were rebellious, how He fed us when we couldn’t feed ourselves, and how He loved us when there was no one there to love us.
We need to boast in our God, Yahweh Elohim, Creator of the heavens and earth and everything in them.

We Boast in You, Yahweh
God, we heard it with our ears; our fathers told us about it — a deed which you did in their days, back in days of old. With your hand you drove out nations to plant them in the land, you crushed peoples to make room for them.
For not by their own swords did they conquer the land, nor did their own arm give them victory; rather, it was your right hand, your arm and the light of your face; because you favored them.
God, you are my king; command complete victory for Jacob. Through you we pushed away our foes, through your name we trampled down our assailants. For I don’t rely on my bow, nor can my sword give me victory.
No, you saved us from our adversaries; you put to shame those who hate us.
We will boast in our God all day and give thanks to your name forever. (Selah)
