In Psalm 75, the Church gives thanks to God by recounting his wondrous deeds. We come together to praise God by reminding each other of what He has done. We repeat the great stories of sin and salvation, so that they become the foundation of our worship. Why do we need such a foundation? Because judgment is coming. God’s verdict shakes the earth, and the boastful and the wicked will fall. All self-worship will crumble. Those who recount their own mighty deeds will be forced to drink the cup of judgment, but those who celebrate the wondrous deeds of God will simply have one more reason for praise and thanks. So as you come to worship today, fill your mind with the wondrous deeds of God.
