Psalms, chapter 79

God can deliver us from sin.We just need to acknowledge, confess and accept Him.

Our Bible reading for today is from Psalms 79, the verse of reference in  is: 

 “Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake.” (Psalms 79:9 NIV).


Help us, forgive us and give us your salvation.

Historical commentary. – This is a penitential psalm, believed to be based on the destruction of Jerusalem. It was probably written commemorating the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar 587 BC. C. Psalm 79 begins with a graphic description of Jerusalem in ruins, and ends with a song of praise with the promise of eternal gratitude. This Psalm was one of the favorite Psalms of the French Huguenots and the English Puritans.

Our Savior. – Christ is the savior of the world, He paid with his death the right to rescue the fallen human race. However, we must declare and believe: Christ, I accept you as my personal savior.

Help us and save us. ‘- These two requests must always be on our lips: 1) Beg for divine help to address the tasks of our everyday lives, 2) Always ask God to help you “No to fall into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

Forgive us our sins. – What alternatives are using to face the reality of our sinful state: 
1) justify our bad acts, arguing that other people have committed worst faults, 
2) Delaying the confession of our sins, because we want to continue doing them; 
3) Ask for the forgiveness of our sins as we perceive that we are moving away from God. “We have to rely on our faith, but in the promises of God.” 

When we repent of our past transgressions of His law, and resolve to render obedience in the future, we must believe in God, for Christ’s sake, He forgive us our sins ECFP 88.


Our Father which art in heaven. Thank you for continually forgiving our sins. May your holy spirit sharpen our conscience, help us to see when we’re about to fall into temptation. We ask that you help us always to hold strong and deliver us from all evil. In the name of Jesus, amen
