Psalm 73:2-3 ” But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”

At least once in every Christian’s life will come a Crisis of Faith…it may happen with a devastating personal medical diagnosis, after the loss of a spouse, or with pending financial ruin. We look at others and wonder why we can’t have an easier time…and we start to doubt God. It’s during this Crisis of Faith we can go one way or another, and many times it’s our emotions that are driving us. For depression and anxiety play a large part in this crisis, or as Psalm 69:2 says, “I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me.” So what can we do at this very critical moment in our lives? We need to seek His Word and His perspective by getting into the Bible and praying for enlightenment and guidance…and then we need to rest in His Presence. For if you notice in these verses it says that Asaph, the writer of this Psalm, did not allow his feet to slip entirely. Yes, there was momentary doubt, but He never turned away, for he knew the goodness of the Lord.
