God is in Control – Psalm 75 Devotional

Let’s dive into Psalm 75

Psalm 75 is a great follow up to Psalm 74 where the psalmist struggled with seeing the wicked prosper. Then in this chapter, we read of God’s strength and justice, and his ultimate judgment. 

“the people’s song of gratitude and adoration begins the hymn in [verse 1]. In the next four, [verses 2-5], the Lord reveals himself as ruling the world in righteousness. Then follows a warning voice from the church to her enemies, [verses 6-8], and a closing song anticipatory of the glory due to God and the utter defeat of the foe”

We see our need to… Let Go and Let God

God is in control.

Let that sink in. Whether you think the world is headed to hell in a handbasket or you think things are just hunky-dory, God is, and will forever be, in control. Let go of the anxiety you feel while trying to maintain control, and let God handle things. 

In the famous words of Carrie Underwood, “Jesus, take the wheel. Take it from my hands, ‘cause I can’t do this on my own. I’m letting go.”

He’s Steady

“At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars.” Psalm 75:2-3

I love the imagery verse three incites. When the world is going crazy and everything seems to be falling apart, God is the one who will keep things steady. He’s holding up the walls all around us, and as long as that remains true, we don’t have to worry about them crumbling all around us.
