Psalm 73 – Woe is Me & The Tragedy of The Lost

From the upcoming book “Notes on Psalms-The Book of Praises” Part IV & V)

Psalm 73:1 Truly, God is good to those that seek Him. Especially those of a willing and humble heart.

Psa 73:2 But regarding myself, my faith was wavering. I was slipping into bad habits.

Psa 73:3 I was looking at other people. I saw them have things I did not.

Psa 73:4 The moral principles of life did not seem to apply to them.

Psa 73:5 They appear comfortable and seem to have peace of mind.

Psa 73:6 Since things are so easy for them, they hold their heads high. They do not consider the less fortunate.

Psa 73:7 Their only desire seems to be to accumulate more and more wealth.

Psa 73:8 They speak of others lowly but speak of themselves highly.

Psa 73:9 They do not consider their creator. Their minds are on earthly things.

Psa 73:10 Therefore, the farthest thing from their minds is to bless others.

Psa 73:11 They say to themselves, I do not have time to think about an invisible God.

Psa 73:12 So it is to them the pursuit of riches and wealth that has meaning in life.

Psa 73:13 But I realize now, almost too late, the error in my thinking!.

Psa 73:14 God has tried to speak to me regarding this. At times He speaks very loudly.

Psa 73:15 So I say to myself, yes God I will correct my poor thinking.

Psa 73:16 But in reality, I was only paying lip service.

Psa 73:17 This was until I saw from God’s perspective and insight, the tragedy that awaited them.

Psa 73:18 They did not wish to comprehend the truth of life or a loving creator.

[(Isa 3:10) Say yes to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings]

Psa 73:19 Right up until the time it is too late to reconsider.

Psa 73:20 By then their heart is hardened against God. They wish to have nothing to do with Him.

Psa 73:21 However, seeing this ugly truth I repented before my God.

Psa 73:22 Lord, I am so self-centered and ignorant! I lacked all insight into the truth.

Psa 73:23 Holy Father, please do not let go of me.

Psa 73:24 Let me walk with you on this journey.

[(Mat 11:29) “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls“]

Psa 73:25 Please have mercy upon me. I love and adore you. Father, you are the desire of my heart.

Psa 73:26 My body and my earthly life shall cease to exist. But God is the life inside my heart that remains forever.

Psa 73:27 If I look at those that are perishing, it distracts me from my purpose.

Psa 73:28 I must return to my walk with my God. I realize now that this is my destiny, that I might reach His kingdom.
