When I came into the Sanctuary
On Sunday, January 20 our pastor preached on this topic. The focus thought was from Psalm 73:17. It is easy for us to feel inadequate and insignificant when we look at the prosperity of the wicked. It also sometimes invokes feelings of envy, jealousy, and anger. It seems they get away with everything while those who strive to live righteously are troubled on every side and are suffering lack.
But Asaph said, "Until I came into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end." When we come into God's House to worship, it should put things in perspective for us. As the old saying goes, "You may get by, but not away." God is just, and he will reward each man according to his deeds. The wheat and tare will grow together, but God will separate at the last day. Be encouraged and of good cheer, for "...He that shall come will come, and will not tarry." God keeps good records, and He will take care of his children. David boldly said in Psalm 37:25, "...I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."
