In Psalm 73, Asaph is confused by how God runs the world. The wicked are rich, they live in comfort, their lives are trouble-free. Maybe living a holy life is simply wasted effort after all. But when Asaph enters the sanctuary, and is lifted up to heaven in worship, he sees the world differently. He looks beyond the present into the future, and sees where sin leads. The apparent prosperity of the wicked is a trap; their feet will soon slip. In light of this vision, Asaph allows his longings to be reset so that riches and ease no longer tempt him. The only desire that brings lasting satisfaction is the desire to be near God. It is this desire that God graciously fulfills by meeting us in worship this morning.
