Canonical Reading Plan for Jun 27, Psa 74-77


Today's readings are Psa 74-77.

Ps 74 - Lament (Asaph seeks God's protection)
Ps 75 - Thanksgiving (Asaph records God's warning)
Ps 76 - Thanksgiving (Asaph exalts God's power)
Ps 77 - Lament (Asaph petitions God's comfort)

Psalms like 74 and, as we will see, 79 reflect the fear and frustration of battle. He pleads for God to intervene for His own sake and for the sake of His reputation. Yet, God's might and sovereign authority are acknowledged and proclaimed in Ps 74:12-17 and in Psalm 79:8-10. Psalms like these remind us that there can be moments of fear and doubt in our walk. They do not condemn us but, even in our fear and doubt, we should repent of our sins, keeping our focus on God and His promises.
