Psalm 73:3,16-18

“For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task, until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I discerned their end. Truly you set them in slippery places...”

When times get tough, don’t forsake your commitment to godliness!

There will be times when you think that if you just compromised a little on your truthfulness, things would be much better. If you just covered your tracks on this little thing, you would come out ahead.

When those temptations come, God wants you to remember the big picture. Asaph, who wrote Psalm 73, struggled with this same temptation. Things seemed so much better off at the time for the ungodly people he knew. Then he spent some time with God—“I went into the sanctuary of God”. As God worked on Asaph’s perspective, he reminded Asaph that right now isn’t all that matters.

Remember that each choice you make in life leads you down a path that goes somewhere. Whenever you are tempted to ramp down your commitment to God for an immediate improvement in your circumstances, God wants you to ask the question, “Where will this choice lead me in the future? What kind of person will it make me? How will it affect my relationship with God and my ministry to others?”
