The context of Psalm 74 is the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 587 B.C. In the midst of despair, the psalmist recounts the mighty past deeds of Yahweh, preaching to himself, reminding himself of who God is and what He does.
God’s word for me today was an affirmation of His kingship going back of the dawn of time (vs. 12). Then the repeated, ‘It was You . . .it was You’ in vss. 13, 14, 15, and 17 preaches God’s goodness and faithfulness to me. God has always been King, sovereignly in control, granting safety in His arms. Doing the impossible throughout history. As I look at my life, He has done the same for me as an individual . . . miracles upon miracles, large and small. It is always You, beautiful Savior, our Lord and King. Always You.
