A journey through Psalm 73

A journey through Psalm 73 - Morning Devotion 22 August 2022

by Pastor Solomon Kings | Morning Devotion

David realizes and compares himself with a wicked person in this book of Psalms 73 after realizing he says in Psalm 73:23 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.

Only you alone are aware of the present scenario and there could be times when we wonder, “Why is it happening to me?” or “You may be upset,” but God promises that he is always by our sides. As it is said in Psalm 73 Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.”

But because he is simply a human, he becomes envious of evil individuals, according to the passage that follows. He feels jealous because, despite the wicked man’s immoral and unconcerned behavior, mockery, and animosity-laced speech, the wicked man is still in a very privileged position and highly fortunate.

There are many people whose lives may be compared to David’s. People might always face issues, even when everything goes according to plan, and when one problem ends, another might come up. People will even occasionally criticize the reasons and motives for praying and reading the Bible in these situations.

After giving it some thought. David visits the temple, stands in the presence of the Almighty, and prays. In Psalm 73:18, God reveals himself to him. Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. God is always with us to hold on even when we experience a lot of misery, anguish, and sorrow. However, God is not with the wicked, and David concludes the psalm with Psalm 73:27-28 which states that those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.

Since God is always with us and not with those wicked individuals, we just need to maintain our positivity rather than compare ourselves to others and feel envious, but to believe that he will hold our hands in every circumstance.
