Psalm 79 Let Your Compassion Come Speedily Summary: Have you ever been disciplined by your parents for disobeying in some way? Our moms and dads discipline us NOT because they hate us, but because they love us and want us to grow in grace and holiness! This is the way God disciplines us as His children. Let's think about it in Psalm 79: Outline: 1. Deep losses 2. Jealous love 3. Reason to praise Verse: Psalm 79:8b Let your compassion come speedily to meet us, for we are brought very low. Discussion Questions: 1. How does Psalm 79 describe the suffering of Israel? WHY are they suffering? 2. What is evidence of God's fatherly discipline and jealous love in this Psalm? How have you seen it in your own life? 3. How does this Psalm perhaps reflect the larger struggle we have against the world, the flesh and the devil? How can you pray for God's

Psalm 78:40-72 God’s Love to a Wayward People Summary: Do you like it when your parents read you a great story? I love great books, and great stories too. The amazing thing about the Bible is that the great stories we read are TRUE - not myths or fairy tales. And God wants us to remember His great power in history because it builds our faith! Today let's remember some of those great moments as we finish Psalm 78 together. Outline: Remember God’s powerful redemption Seek blessing from God alone Embrace God’s grace in your waywardness Verse: John 10:11 (ESV)11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. Discussion Questions: 1. As you read Psalm 78 again, what was the failure of Israel in the wilderness (see vv. 18-20)? What was their failure in the promised land (vv. 42, 48)? 2. Israel's idolatry was a failure to trust in God alone for salvation and blessing. What are the ways you seek blessing, identity, safety or security apart from God? 3. How does Psalm 78:65-72 show us God's grace even in the face of His people's sin? How should God's sacrifice of His Son for you move you to put idolatry and discontent to death?

Psalm 78:9-39 Learn from the Past Summary: Have you ever had your parents tell you to clean your room, but you don't do it? Did they get frustrated because they had to tell you multiple times? Sometimes we need to be reminded over and over again before we learn. Psalm 78 reminds God's people (again!) of His faithfulness, and how easily we forget His care and goodness. But even when we fail, God is full of mercy and love! Let's learn from the past together, as we see God's commitment to us in four ways: Outline: 1. God's miracles 2. God's provision 3. God's discipline 4. God's mercy Verse: Psalm 103:8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Discussion Questions: 1. What is the purpose for which the Psalm writer rehearses this history? Why do we need it today as well? 2. What are the ways Israel forgot God's power in Egypt, His provision in the wilderness, spurned His discipline, and even ignored His mercy? How do you tend to do the same at times? 3. Why do you think God still poured out mercy on Israel, even with all their rebellion? How has God done that even better for you in Christ? How might this Psalm serve as a powerful pointer to Jesus' perfect life, and work of atonement for us? 4. What might it look like to more actively cultivate

Has God Forgotten? Summary: Have you ever been sad or depressed? Sometimes something sad happens, or we may be sad and we don't even know why. God knows and understands our sorrows, better than anyone. Today let's look at Psalm 77 and see how Asaph seeks help from God when he is discouraged. Outline: 1. How depression feels 2. How faith searches 3. How God answers Verse: Psalm 77:11 (ESV)11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. Discusion Questions: 1. If you experience short or long term depression, can you describe what it feels like? Are their circumstances that contribute to your sadness, or is it something that just seems to stay with you? 2. How does the Psalm writer describe his suffering in this way? How does he question God? Do you think this is healthy? 3. How does this Psalm search for help and hope? How does this Psalm point us to Jesus, the

Psalm 75 Singing Praise for God's Justice Summary: Do you know what a judge is?  When someone breaks the law, they often have to face a judge in court who decides if they are guilty.  That judge then sentences them for their crime. The Bible tells us that God is the ultimate judge, and that is a good thing!  Why is that good?  Why should that give us hope, and even make us praise Him?  Let's find out: Outline: 1. God is the judge, and that is good news 2. God's comfort and warning 3. God's justice deepens our reasons for worship Verse: Psalm 75:7  But it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another. Discussion Questions 1.
