Morning Psalms 73:23, 24

Noon Psalm 5

Evening Psalms 73: 25-28

The psalmist's experience on this occasion is similar to any trial that we may face in our daily lives. Our eyes can sometimes be clouded by the seeming prosperity of the wicked, but like a loving parent who watches over us, the Lord turns our attention to Him. In a way, this is the daily battle of our Christian life, and we all run the risk of losing sight of the ideal, looking like, as the author himself said, “a beast without understanding, ignoring the most obvious.” With all that inability that we sometimes demonstrate, our perseverance would seem impossible, but like a refreshing balm the Word comes to drive away our fears: “You took me by the right hand. You have guided me according to your advice, and afterwards you will receive me in glory.” Just as this author experienced, so it is with us. First, God has taken our hand, not us his, it is God’s strength that sustains us. Second, we are guided according to his will, we do not go by chance. Finally, the excellent promise: You will receive me in glory, with the conviction of an immovable truth as is with the fidelity of our God.

When the sense of our foolishness leads us to trust the wisdom of the Lord, we take a great step forward in being wise.

“Nevertheless, I am continually with You;You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.”

Morning Psalms 73:23, 24

23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.

24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

Noon Psalm 5

1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Evening Psalms 73: 25-28

25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.

28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
