Before humans developed a written language using clay tablets, papyrus, then scrolls, later books, people told the stories of their ancestors through verbal storytelling. They were in the form folk songs and ballads. In the Old Testament, many of the Psalms are stories. As is Psalm 78. Before we continue with King David’s reign, let’s take a look at where the Israelites started and how God led them, miracle after miracle, to the point of a United Israel under a shepherd.
If we forget the lessons of history, we are doomed to repeat them. Think about that for a moment — especially reflecting on what’s been happening in the world recently. History is a teacher as long as history is remembered. We must learn not just from our successes and failures, but those of others as well.
Then, we’ll see how this ties to Jesus, the Messiah and Savior of the World.
This psalm is written by Asaph, King David’s chief musician. Let’s dig in…
It’s time to GET RIGHT WITH GOD!
Are you ready to meet God today? You may just meet God today!
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
