When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.  (Psalm 73:16,17)

Can you remember losing your perspective about a situation? It could have involved almost any topic — relationship, job, health, money, or disappointment. Although we often tend to associate prayer with asking God to change something, sometimes He simply chooses to change us.

Consider Asaph, the writer of Psalm 73. Asaph was reflecting on a time when he nearly lost his spiritual footing. Why? He clearly tells us that it was because he envied the arrogant and wicked people around him. These people were filthy rich and seemed to be living carefree lives. They lived only for themselves and paid no attention to God whatsoever. Asaph questioned whether his attempts to serve God were worth the effort. But one day he went to the temple, gathering with other worshippers, and talked to the Lord about this. God showed him that these people might be enjoying themselves temporarily here on earth, but their final destiny would be destruction. Now Asaph understood. Through prayer, God had given him perspective.

The Lord will do the same for you.
