                                       THE SANCTUARY OF GOD

Psalm 73: 2-3 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

Vs. 3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

Vs. 12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

Vs. 13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

Vs. 14 For all the day long I have been plagued, and chastened every morning.

Note verse 16 and 17…When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;

Vs. 17.. Until I went into the SANCTUARY of GOD; then understood I their end.


Sanctuary defined: a sacred place, a Holy spot…place of refuge or protection

Example we have wild life sanctuaries…Bird sanctuarie, a place where animals and birds feed, rest,

and breed without being disturbed. For you and I a vacation can be a sanctuary or even a hospital stay

can be a place of rest and care. Jesus Himself went away to the mountains to rest from the crowd.


Pain, perplexity and problems are universal experiences. In both the righteous and wicked.

The experience of pain is a troubling and agonizing experience, and we often ask why?

   The Bible gives no easy answers. However; one of the most helpful things about the Bible,

one of the things that makes the reading of it so relevant to the problems of life as we face them,

is that we find reflected in its pages the experiences of our own lives today.

   David said I was about to lose it, I almost fell on my face, It didn’t seem fair. I have been plagued

and chastened every morning. When I thought on my situation and took account of my circumstances

it was too painful, too unbearable for me. My problems, pain and pressure put my back against the wall.



Psalm 77:13 The WAY of God is in he SANCTUARY: Who is so great a God as our God.

When your feet slip, steps falter you find your bearings and His WAY in the SANCTUARY.


Psalm 96:6 ….strength and beauty are in His SANCTUARY.


Psalm 134 2 Lift up your hands in the SANCTUARY

The most important thing you can do is to get your eyes off people, cease from comparing yourself with others,

quit using their prosperity as the yard stick to measure yourself by. Understanding , refuge, protection, comfort

and last but not least UNDERSTANDING will be found in the SANCTUARY OF GOD.
