O God, Why?

Tap on the image for a video meditation on Psalm 74.

The Lord is greater than the power of any enemy. However, this only occurs to the psalmist after he confronts himself with his tendency to doubt. What helped Job helps the psalmist—placing his own enemies against the backdrop of creation, remembering the obvious: God made the summer and winter, and is the one who breaks the heads of Leviathan, the great sea beast. Note the repetition of you as the psalmist makes a list of all the wonderful things God can do.

When your brand of Leviathan raises it head against you, get in touch with the way this and other psalms move—expression free and unhampered before God, followed by savoring the renewed trust found in the power of God to liberate.
