For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.
But as for me, the nearness of God is my good
I have put my trust in and made the Sovereign LORD my refuge
That I may tell of all His works.
God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever…As for me, the nearness of God is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge that I may tell of all Thy works. Psalm 73:26,28
Then you will have a perspective change, then you will see how the path of sin does not lead to a prosperous path. Then you will know that you have not kept your heart pure in vain. You will see how God will handle the wicked, and then you will be able to say, “But as for me, the nearness of God is my good.” Because God is near we are not guaranteed that we will not have troubles. In fact, Jesus promised just the opposite. He said, “You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.” (Matt. 10:22)
