Scripture Minute – Psalm 73:26

“My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.” (Psalm 73:26)

In this Psalm, David is acknowledging human frailty and vulnerability. In our frailty, as humans we can experience physical weaknesses, emotional struggles, or even spiritual doubts and challenges. Despite the limitations and weaknesses of the human condition, we find our strength and support in God. Spiritual strength, encouragement, and comfort comes when we put our trust in the Lord.

That very Source of strength is not temporary; the Lord is Eternal. Our Lord is a permanent and enduring Source of provision, guidance, and comfort throughout life and into eternity.

When the human body and heart fail, God remains steadfast and provides unwavering support and strength. As believers, we know that God’s presence and support are everlasting, offering solace and hope during challenging times.
