CONVICTION

Psalm 73:21

When my heart was embittered And I was pierced within,

 

LESSON

 

Asaph also found encouragement as he reflected on his own future and the future of all the faithful. The awareness of the relative prosperity of the godless led Asaph to become bitter toward God. However, now he realized that he was wrong and his viewpoint was similar to an animal’s, namely, ignorant of divine revelation.

 

I was deeply wounded with disquieting thoughts. He knew nothing! He was *stupid! He was *like a wild animal! His heart (thoughts) and his stomach (body) had hurt him, but it was all his fault! (Fault means “doing wrong”.) God was with him all the time and that was the most important thing in life. When have you been so convicted that your very thoughts caused you pain.

 

Memory Verse: Luke 5:8
“I meant what I said and I said what I meant.”
