"Nevertheless I am continually with thee."
- Psalm 73:23
 
In this Psalm we find the writer, Asaph, like a frail vessel, that has been tossed to and fro by tempestuous waves, but that finally has reached its haven. The Psalmist had been in a very disturbed frame of mind. With growing envy he had observed the prosperity of the wicked and at the same time the manifold misfortunes of the godly. Asaph was perplexed and grieved until he went into the sanctuary and began to worship God, he saw beyond the present. He quit his reasoning and repining and quietly listened to the voice of God.

The Psalmist had been in a very disturbed frame of mind. With growing envy he had observed the prosperity of the wicked and at the same time the manifold misfortunes of the godly. Asaph was perplexed and grieved until he went into the sanctuary and began to worship God, he saw beyond the present. He quit his reasoning and repining and quietly listened to the voice of God. "Nevertheless," he now exclaims in the triumphant faith, "I am continually with Thee" When the wicked die, it is the end of everything they have enjoyed. But believers will be satisfied when they open their eyes in heaven.
 
Christian friends, "nevertheless" is the word of faith we all must learn to speak. For many of us life is filled with contradictions and perplexities. Iniquity seems to go unpunished and virtue unrewarded. We would like to understand God's dealing with ourselves, but we cannot. At times we are cheerfully resigned; at other faith grows dim, and our spirit rebels within us. "Nevertheless", this must be our escape. As we go into the sanctuary, as we hear and read God's Word, quietly and prayerfully, we, too, shall learn to say: "Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel and afterward receive me to glory."
 
 
      I'm going home to Jesus;
      My life will soon begin;
      Earth's ties will then be severed
      As heaven I enter in.
    
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - When a Christian dies, he has just begun to live.
