This psalm gave me a lump in my throat. I felt a pang of anguish as the psalmist described how God’s temple and altars were destroyed and turned to ruins. That would be a horrifying scene to witness. The psalmist feels powerless over this violence. He continues the psalm by reminding God of His mighty power, listing many great acts God has done. He asks God to arise and defend his cause and his people.
We can look back and see that God did defend His cause, in His perfect timing. He always does. He will again. That’s our assurance.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 75
