Bible Reading for JUN26: [001] Psalms 78-79

JUNE 26

In Psalm 78 Asaph is calling his people to give ear unto the
Law and incline their ears to the words of his mouth. He speaks of
how Israel has turned back and tempted God; yet God was faithful to
forgive the great nation when they repented of their sins and turned
to Him. Israel’s history is seen in verses 1-55; and David receives
grace from God in verses 65-72. Verse 41 says, “Yea, they turned
back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.” This
verse has proven to be true through the entire history of Israel,
even to the present day. In our every day living, when we do not
give ourselves to the Lord and allow the Holy Spirit to work in our
lives, we limit the joy and peace that come into our lives. The Holy
Spirit indwells every believer, but the believer fails to grow and
mature into Christian adulthood when he continually shuts the Holy
Spirit out by not submitting his life to Him.

Psalm 79 is a prayer for judgment upon Jerusalem’s enemies.
Through this lament points to some great national calamity, the
prophetic meaning will find fulfillment in Jerusalem under the false
messiah when the cruelties of Antiochus Epiphanes will be repeated
(Revelation 11:3-12).
