PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Psalm 74
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“They burned every place where God was worshiped…” (Psalm 74:8)
I’ve watched debates where the Atheist walk all over the Christian.
It can be very difficult to hang on to faith when the attacks come.
In Psalm 74 it went further; God attackers were killing believers.
The nation of Israel was devastated, and believers were desperate.
Why God was letting this happen, when would God step in to help?
There are “no signs from God” (v.9), begging the question, is he there?
“But God is my king” (v.12) Asaph declares, despite this defeat.
This is our hope too, when faith in God is under attack.
And when the church seems to shrink, or implode on itself.
The failure of the church is not the failure of God.
God remains king, God remains God; atheists cannot change that.
Jesus’ followers have been under attack for centuries, and they remain!
We need to stay true to Jesus, to his way, and to his God and ours.
Stand firm in faith, hope and love, for he will come through in the end!
Lord, I cling to faith despite all that has happened against it. But please, show yourself soon, for the sake of those who are dying for you!
