Psalm 73:2 Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
lnsight and Highlight
Life is full of "almost". Many suffer from "near, yet far" syndrome in life, but there is One who gives life more abundantly.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.*
Life is full of "almost".
To some, it is a case of almost falling into the abyss of life's tragedies but were saved or finding a way of escape, ref 1 Cor 10:13.
To some, it is the tragic and woes of the "almost" syndrome at the point of major breakthroughs.
The "almost" syndrome occurs when it is so close to a breakthrough, yet it becomes so far.
To some, they could never be closed as they got, yet they saw, but they could not touch, achieve, or be fulfilled. Not everyone comes to see and conquers. Enemy activities are mostly at work and must never be overlooked.
So, "almost" can either be good or bad depending on its narratives.
According to Psalm 72, impure hearts lead to doubt in God and have many of its attendant vices.
Do not be distracted. The psalmist was distracted by the prosperity of the wicked, Psalm 72:3.
Though he knew God is good to those with a pure heart yet his distraction brought him to a point where he almost backslid.
As close as his belief in God was, so also was how close he was to losing God.
The Psalmist was so distracted that he said in Psalm 73:13 *Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure and have washed my hands in innocence.*(NIV)
According to the Psalmist only an impure heart, lack of contentment, and other related vices will rob one of achieving his/her much desired moment of fulfillment.
He however overcame saying in Psalm 73:17 as he found answers to overcoming his "almost" tragedies. He says He did not overcome *Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end".*
