Asaph pleads with God in Psalm 74, asking Him to remember His covenant people, knowing that God’s remembrance will lead to their salvation. Asaph knows that God is not lacking in power: He separated earth from sea, broke the heads of the sea monsters, and even controls the planets. Asaph makes sure that God doesn’t lack motivation, either: the worship of God has been disrupted and His worshipers scattered. God’s reputation before the world rests on His people, and God’s covenant promises are on the line: will God make known His presence, and enable His people to worship? As we come to worship God this morning, let us join our voices with Asaph: Arise, O God!
