Psalm 73:1-28 Truly God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart...
think about it.
What does the psalmist struggle with here? What pointed him in the right direction (73:16-17)? Where do you turn when you see injustice around you?
Have you ever been where Asaph was in Psalm 73--envious of the people of the world and their perceived prosperity? It's pretty easy to let your mind go there, especially when you've been diligent in serving and following the Lord yet you're struggling. You just can't seem to make ends meet financially, one thing after the other seems to go wrong, you or a loved one gets a bad report from the doctor--you get the drift.
So the next time we're tempted to give in and have a pity party, what can we do to take our eyes off of us and our situation and focus them instead on God and His provision and protection?Tami W.
