Sep 12, 2016 – Psalm 73

Read Psalm 73

Take a quick look at who wrote this psalm. It is Asaph. You can learn more about who Asaph was in 1 Chronicles 6:31-39. That might make a difference as you think about this chapter.

In 28 short verses, we can see a man who is almost overcome by how he viewed the wicked, and then remembers the destiny of the wicked and the righteous. This division is in vv 1-14, followed by vv 15-28.

Look at those sections again. What are the emotions that are expressed? What caused the self-aware realization in his heart? What was Asaph’s mood at the beginning and at the end?

Have you ever been discouraged by what you see other people having? Realize that bitterness is often the cause of this. Remember that you belong to the Lord and that He holds you in His hand.

But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do. -v28
