Psalm 75

Chapter Summary

God is the Judge

This psalm sings God’s praises and reminds us that it is only God who can judge correctly, knowing all hearts. God will ultimately decide who is lifted up and who is put down—He is the only one who really knows, from the inside, which of us choose to live with Him forever and which choose to pay for our own sins instead of accepting Jesus.

Day 201

Great Judge, thank You so much for giving me Jesus to hide inside! You can and do judge my daily thoughts and actions, and I do ask that You keep me in Your way of love. But ultimately, it is Jesus who stands in Your court for me.
