DAY 179: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today’s journey, through Psalms 75-77, answers the question posed by the Psalmist in Psalm 74: God is in control.
Spend some time in pray before reading today’s reading. Ask the Lord for His wisdom in understanding Psalms 75-77. Read Psalms 75-77. Let’s journey!
As we journey through the third book of Psalms, remember that nearly every psalm can be classified as a psalm of Lament or a psalm of praise. A lament is cry to the Lord, asking Him to do something, most often when we are in pain, confused, or angry. A psalm of praise is a prayer of joy and celebration, thanking the Lord for His work.
Psalms 75-77: Today’s reading speaks of a people who abandoned God yet feel as if God has abandoned them. They recall God coming to their rescue in the past and are confident that God once again will restore them. The only question remaining is when? (Psalms 75:1-77:20)
Read chapters 75-77, and ask yourself these questions: Are these psalms of lament or praise? How do you know? What does this psalm teach you about the God? Take a moment and offer up to God at least one praise and one lament from your own life.
