Psalm 44

Psalm 44 is unusual. Though it resembles other psalms that decry Israel’s suffering and persecution from the nations, this psalm has a completely different twist to it. Whereas other psalms attribute God’s anger to human failure, this one is just the opposite. Why does God’s punishment befall us when we have not sinned nor broken His covenant? In fact, why do the past and the future appeal to us while the present seems so miserable? The Apostle Paul provides valuable insight into this psalm, so In this study we place Psalm 44 and Romans 8 side by side to produce a beautiful insight into why the present seems so difficult.
