A principle to help me find peace in a messed up world: Attention drives emotion
When overwhelmed with life…
…we can look Around
“I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.” V3
…we can look within
“Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.” V13
…we can look up
“Whom have I in heaven but You? And earth has nothing I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” V25-26
In Christ, we have a treasure that this world cannot match and death cannot take away.
My NEXT STEP with God is to…
- …consider which part of Psalm 73 I am dwelling in. Am I consumed with THEM, I or HIM (GOD)?
- …begin a relationship with God through Jesus. Talk with someone about this before you leave today!
- …memorize Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
