Psalm 76-78 The psalmist is not only talking to himself but to us as well. In Psalm 76:1, he notes that God is known in Judah. Is God known in my sphere of influence? The second thing he recalls is that God is more resplendent, that he shines brightly and reveals his majesty, more majestic than the mountains of prey. Do I see God’s majestic splendor as I awaken even though my landscape is flat, not mountainous?
In Psalm 77:1-2, he cries out to God for help and notes that God pays attention. He also recalls memories of the past when God heard and responded to his groans even when he was troubled and could not speak because of the heaviness of his heart.
In Ps 78:3-4, the psalmist reminds himself not to forget to tell the next generation about the Lord’s praiseworthy acts, his strength, and the amazing things he has done. Am I actively doing that today as well as every other day?
There will be mountains, memories, and milestones in our lives. Which one is the most important to you, to me?
