Thoughts after praying Psalm 73
Sin is a two pronged fork…one minute it is feeding you pleasures, plenty, and promises. Then one day sin matures and it serves you death. Sin can’t be trusted for It camouflages itself to lure you in, but in the end it destroys you.
The Word of God on the other hand is likened to a double-edged sword. One moment it is cutting out cancerous tumors that have attached themselves to your soul. The next minute it is defeating enemies you may or may not know are pursing you. All the while it’s building inside of you a kingdom that cannot be shaken or moved.
The choice looks obvious but for many application is difficult.
Psalm 73:25-26 “Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
