Psalm 73 is one I read a lot in these days of turbulence. It seems that evil is prevailing in the world many times. They are too strong for us. Too powerful. We have no way to stand against it or defeat it, and we see no justice. Time and time again we see the good trampled down, the righteous oppressed, tormented and killed. We see lies spoken as truth and truth as lies. We see good being turned to evil and evil to good. What are the righteous (those made righteous by the blood of Jesus Himself, not by any merit of their own) to do?
Psalm 73 tells the story and reminds us God does see. He hears. He does bring judgment in His day, in His time, and He holds onto His children, reminding them that He alone is the strength of our hearts and our portion forever. We find we have no real portion in this world, no riches of this life to speak of, and we find Him to be our life, our riches, our portion, and find contentment in Him. One day we will be with Him in glory! What is anything we suffer now compared to that?
