This week in our Bible study we learned more about Asaph, a leader of one of the temple choirs. I barely knew his name and he wrote a collection of the Psalms. Just as Susan mentioned during our lecture time, now I feel he can be my friend as scripture shows us his transparency. He experienced doubts and also had flaws; yet in the end, still remembered that God’s every word is true and faithful. Asaph leaves no doubt that he chose to worship and trust in the one true God for strength and a future mansion in heaven.
I am so like him when I look around and see others in seemingly happy bliss with not a care or worry. Reminds me of the old proverb about walking a mile in another’s moccasin before judging them and determining their life is golden.
“Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you” (Psalm 73:23–25).
Thank you, God, for ALWAYS being with me and holding me with your almighty right hand. You are available when I need advice. You are also there when I falter and try to do things my way. I learned this week that there’s really nothing else or no one else more worthy of my affection, energy, and devotion. Thank you for being patient with me.
