I Envied The Peace Of The Wicked...they Are Not Troubled

13

Why did one Levite become deeply discouraged? The writer of Psalm 73 was a Levite. As such, he had the remarkable privilege of serving at God’s place of worship. Still, at one point in his life, even he got discouraged. Why? He began to envy the wicked and arrogant, not because of their badness, but because of their evident prosperity. (Ps. 73:2-9, 11-14) They seemed to have it all​—wealth, a good life, and no anxieties. Their apparent success so discouraged the psalmist that he said: “Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure and washed my hands I have kept my heart pure and washed my hands in innocence.” Clearly, he was in grave spiritual danger. HAVE YOU EVER FELT THAT WAY BEFORE? Despite being so close to God, you still face one difficulty after another. While the wicked or those that don't care about God are prospering? Then now u know that u are not alone. SO WHAT HELPED THE LEVITE TO ADJUST HIS THINKING? Read Psalms 73 : 16-19 and 22-25, 27-28. Hope you were encouraged. Feel free to share a scripture below that encouraged you today or of recent.
