“Then I realized that my heart was bitter, and I was all torn up inside. I was so foolish and ignorant-I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.”
Psalms 73:21-24 (NLT)
Lies, false assumptions and unfounded predictions can drive us to despair. The fear, anger and sorrow they bring us cause us to do questionable things. In today’s verse the Psalmist was torn up inside. What he believed made him bitter, foolish and even ignorant to God. However, when He came to his senses, he saw how bad he was before God and repented. Have you been there? You know, those times when you think God should have given up on you? But please, let it sink in, God doesn’t give up! The amazing truth is that God forgave the Psalmist. God comforted, counseled and continued to guide him. The love he experienced from God caused him to write one of the most beautiful verses ever written about God. “Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever.” Today, might this same reality sink deep into your heart.
Oh Dear Jesus, my heart cries, “Hallelujah, what a Savior!” I know I don’t always live the way I should. I know many days my attitude is all wrong. But today, I know You forgive me. I know that You will never abandon me. I know that You are committed to my maturity. Help me remember this as I live out this day.
