WHAT ARE YOUR EYES FIXED ON?

May 2

In Psalm 73 we see the writer has taken his eyes off of God and put them on the world and what he perceives is going on.  It is easy sometimes to look around and see what the wicked are doing and it looks like everything is going their way and they are living the good life in spite of the evil they do. They reject God and think that He cannot and will not do anything to them for the way they are living. This Psalmist was not looking in the right place as we often don’t either.  He finally goes into the temple of God and is shown the end of these wicked people.  He sees that it might look like they have it all now, but unfortunately this is the best that things will ever be for them.  They may get it all now, but pay later as the Midas commercial used to say.  You can pay me now or you can pay me later.  We who trust in Christ may suffer for following Him now, but it will be worth it all in the end as Romans 8:18 says, For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. The Psalmist is ashamed of himself for thinking all of these things and doubting the goodness of God.  Let us not be like this Psalmist who got his eyes on the world and was disillusioned, but let us be like him in the last part of the Psalm where he says in verses 25-26 Whom have I in heaven 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. Amen!!

Surely God is good to Israel, To those who are pure in heart! (Psalm 73:1)
