Blogging the Bible 139 – Psalms 73-75 – Things aren’t always as they seem.

Once again we come back to psalms which look back to the evidence of God’s past faithfulness as a foundation for future confidence in his justice.

This time, in psalms 73 &  74, we see the psalmist first questioning God’s justice on the basis of how present experience. The wicked prosper, while the righteous suffer. This is the pressing evidence of his eyes. But his heart, informed by his memory, knows that this is not the final reality. God will indeed act, in his own time. He will not be hurried, nor will be be delayed.

How can I build up a memory bank of God’s faithfulness to remind me of the deeper realities of his kingdom?
