THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 73-75 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 73:16-17 16 When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me. 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.
I live in an area with lots of bugs. Nothing is more annoying that driving with a windshield covered with BUGS! When I stop long enough to wash the windshield it is amazing how much “clearer” things look.
You might say the Psalmist had bugs on his windshield. The way of the wicked and their seeming prosperity messed up his vision. At one point he says, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain and washed my hands in innocence.” He felt that all the “Godly” things he had been doing were useless…of no value. He felt this frustration until he entered the Sanctuary of God, “16 When I thought how to understand this, It was too painful for me. 17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood their end.”
You know this one of the great benefits of going to God’s house. It’s amazing how a meeting with God changes our perspective on life. The Psalmist saw the end game for the prosperous and the wicked and it wasn’t good. The outcome of their life of evil was going to be BAD!
Its amazing how one little meeting…with God…can be so powerful. Meet with HIM! Meet with HIM often!! Meet with HIM today!!! Meet with HIM now!!!!
Father, how I earnestly and desperately desire to meet with YOU. You are my everything…my reason for living. When life is overwhelming bring clarity. When life is filled with doubt bring certainty. When life is hard bring YOUR comfort…I need YOU…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
