Read Psalms 73:21-28 (https://bit.ly/35OojZu)
If you read the entire psalm, you’ll see the author wondering why those who hate God are blessed while he, a man faithful to God, is afflicted. I’ve felt like that. How about you? Yet verse 23 is the turning point. All of this is true – the affliction, the bitterness: “Yet I am always with You; You hold me by my right hand.” When a parent and child walk through a crowd, the child is jostled and feels anxious because he cannot see what’s ahead. But his father is holding his hand. A small child might be carried on his father’s shoulders, but an older child must walk because he is too big to carry. We can be encouraged that as we grow in our relationship with Christ, we will walk through various trials but never alone. And the end result, as the psalmist says in the last verse, is that we tell others about the goodness of God.
