This is an exposition of Psalm 80. This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Wednesday evening, December 6, 2017.
This psalm has a recurring chorus, found in verses 3, 7, and 19, which is the theme of the Psalm: A plea for God's favor.
Three stanzas make up Psalm 80. In times of uncertainty:
- believers find comfort in a strong shepherding God (vs. 1-3).
- believers are forced to deal with the reality of their sin and its devastating consequences (vs. 4-7).
- believers come to rely on God's tencer, compassionate care (vs. 8-19).
