Psalms 73:25-26 - Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
You’re All I Want
The Psalmist, Asaph, learned of the oppressiveness trying to figure out life’s mystery. He brought his worries and questions to God in prayer. He wondered why the arrogant and wicked seemed to live carefree and prosperous. That type of problem will bring plague while searching for the solution.
Setting all of that worrisome stuff aside, he went to the house of the Lord and found his answer. The answer is the faith knowing that God is in control and will take care of it all by His Sovereignty and Providence.
Asaph then turns his attention and devotion to God, and not the justice the wicked needed. He basically says, “You’re all I want in heaven and You’re all I want on earth.”
I wonder what worries of ours would pass by the wayside when we do the same as Asaph and set our attention and devotion to God. All we want shouldn’t be to relish in the punishment of the wicked. All we want shouldn’t be to see the arrogant and disobedient fall for their haughtiness. All we want should be for the Sovereign, providential God to have His way.
If we move our attention from others to God, I’m sure that we can say the same as Asaph - God, You’re all I want.
