Psalm 74: to be free from anguish and anxiety
We all go through moments of anguish and anxiety, which makes us have a temperament more difficult to be addressed by those around us, whether they are family, friends or co-workers.
In this way, without the peace of mind and the precious psalms of the day we begin to develop difficulties to sleep, low immunity and, as a consequence, we become more susceptible to illness, failing to enjoy life and bringing a more difficult conviviality to all. Next we will look at the meaning and interpretation of Psalm 74.
Psalm 74: the power of Psalms against anxiety
Known as the heart of the Old Testament, the book of Psalms is the largest of the entire Holy Bible and the first to clearly cite the reign of Christ as well as the events of the Last Judgment.
Based on rhythmic statements, each of the Psalms has a purpose for every moment of life. There are psalms to heal, to acquire goods, to the family, to get rid of fears and phobias, for protection, to succeed at work, to go well on a trial, among many others. However, the most correct way to chant a psalm is almost to sing, thus obtaining the desired result.
Healing resources for body and soul, the Psalms of the day have the power to reorganize our whole existence. Each Psalm has its power and, in order for it to become even greater, enabling its goals to be fully attained, the chosen Psalm should be recited or sung for 3, 7 or 21 days in a row.
Connecting to the divine can certainly bring more encouragement to our hearts and thus reduce anxieties. Several emotional situations can bring us to this problem, whether positive things like a new passion or new challenges at work, or negatives such as fear, phobias and so many others that bring us strong emotional impacts.
This anxiety hampers our ability to concentrate and discern the best way out of the problem, which creates even greater levels of this destructive feeling. This is the best time to turn to the psalms of the day, connect with the heavens, and seek the peace of mind needed to clearly see the best solution to the problems.
Psalms of the day: free from anxiety with Psalm 74
Psalm 74 helps us through the spirit to fight our sorrow, our anxiety and our anguish. The Psalmist calls attention in a timeless way to his people, highlighting very relevant questions of the Christian life. With faith and open heart, chant this Psalm.
1 O God, why have you rejected us forever?
Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
2 Remember the nation you purchased long ago,
the people of your inheritance, whom you redeemed—
Mount Zion, where you dwelt.
3 Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins,
all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary.
4 Your foes roared in the place where you met with us;
they set up their standards as signs.
5 They behaved like men wielding axes
to cut through a thicket of trees.
6 They smashed all the carved paneling
with their axes and hatchets.
7 They burned your sanctuary to the ground;
they defiled the dwelling place of your Name.
8 They said in their hearts, “We will crush them completely!”
They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land.
9 We are given no signs from God;
no prophets are left,
and none of us knows how long this will be.
10 How long will the enemy mock you, God?
Will the foe revile your name forever?
11 Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand?
Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them!
12 But God is my King from long ago;
he brings salvation on the earth.
13 It was you who split open the sea by your power;
you broke the heads of the monster in the waters.
14 It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan
and gave it as food to the creatures of the desert.
15 It was you who opened up springs and streams;
you dried up the ever-flowing rivers.
16 The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.
17 It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth;
you made both summer and winter.
18 Remember how the enemy has mocked you, Lord,
how foolish people have reviled your name.
19 Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts;
do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever.
20 Have regard for your covenant,
because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land.
21 Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace;
may the poor and needy praise your name.
22 Rise up, O God, and defend your cause;
remember how fools mock you all day long.
23 Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries,
the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.
