Psalms 73 was composed by Asaph who was the chief Levite Musician under the direction of king David. In this Psalm Asaph is voicing the Mental conflict that he is experiencing as he observed the apparent properity of the wicked while the righteous appear to suffer nothing but persecution.
Asaph was so embittered by what he perceived that he was loosing his faith in God and focusing on the things that this world was offering, he said, KJV Psalms 73:2-3 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
Asaph admits that he was at breaking point, KJV Psalms 73:16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Then as he took his dilemma in to the presence of God the answer was revealed to him, KJV Psalms 73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. Asaph had lost his perspective and exaggerated the prosperity of the wicked. The wicked are in the most dangerous and frightening position, if their life ends they would have to face the final judgment without an Intercessor which means that they would face the penalty for their sins which is death.
If you have problems and questions about life's challenges, we invite you to join us on Prayers of Hope as we, like Asaph take them to God as life's problems are solved in Communion with Him..
