Good morning brothers and sisters. There is nothing but to write Psalm 73 today. Ask God to reveal it to your soul as He directs my paths.
1- Truly God is good to Israel, to such as are pure in heart.
2- But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; my steps had nearly slipped.
3- For I was envious of the boastful when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4- For there are no pangs in their death, but their strength is firm.
5- They are not in trouble as other men, nor are they plagued like other men.
6-Therefore pride serves as their necklace; violence covers them like a garment.
7-Their eyes bulge with abundance; they have more than heart could wish.
8- They scoff and speak wickedly concerning oppression; they speak loftily.
9-They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walks through the earth.
10- Therefore his people return here, and waters of a full cup are drained by them,
11- And they say, "How does God know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?
12-Behold, these are the ungodly, who are always at ease;
13- Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocence.
14- For all day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.
15- If I had said, I will speak thus, behold, I would have been untrue to the generation of Your children.
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.
18- Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction.
19- Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment! They are utterly consumed with terrors.
20- As a dream when one awakes, so, Lord, when You awake, You shall despise their image.
21- Thus my heart was grieved, and I was vexed in my mind.
22- I was so foolish and ignorant; I was like a beast before You.
23- Nevertheless I am continually with You, You hold me by my right hand.
24- You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
25- Whom have I in heave but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
26- My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27- For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish; You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry.
28- But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all Your works.
Amen! Rise up children of God, rise up!
