Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth.
(Psalm 73:25 NLT)
This wasn’t Asaph’s initial reaction. Earlier in the psalm, he had envied the prosperity of the wicked–their health, wealth, success and trouble-free life. Sadly, during his difficult times, the psalmist allowed his eyes to shift to the prosperity of the wicked. However, when he entered the temple of God, Asaph learned of their tragic destiny and his faith was renewed. It was then that he confessed that nothing in heaven or on earth is more desirable than God. It’s not long before we’ll eventually realize this truth. The nearer we draw to God, the less desirable other things will become to us. We’ll understand that God is truly the one and only.
Nothing is more desirable than God.
