Keep it Right
Psalm 74:1-23 O God, why do you cast us off forever? Why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your pasture...
think about it.
What is the psalmist's complaint (74:1-11)? On what does he base his confidence that God will answer? Where do you need to place your confidence today?
I read Psalm 74 a number of times as I prepared to write for today. Each time, I was drawn to Asaph's pointing out of how their enemies were insulting and dishonoring to God. But here's the thing, I kept saying to myself but wasn't Israel guilty of doing essentially the same thing? And then I started thinking about us and how easily we can fall into that camp as well.
So how do we guard against letting our hearts and attitudes become distant from, dishonoring and even insulting to God? Tami W.
