Psalm 27:4

Psalm 27:4

by Davina from Daily Nourish

A year ago

One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. - Psalm 27:4

David here proclaims his lifelong passion. Having spent much of his life camping amidst the sheep of his father’s pasture and sleeping in the wilderness evading Saul’s armies, he confesses that his deepest longing is to be near to God, to see the beauty of the Lord, and not just see the Lord, but meditate and gaze upon the Lord. David, again, lights the path of the righteous and shows how a Christian may truly set his life apart - not by fits of passion and excitement, but by a sustained yearning for a city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. Note that David’s desire does not waiver, yet remains singularly focused. It remains constant in the sight of evildoers, enemies of both flesh and spirit, and the evil day of trouble. We too should arm ourselves for trouble before that day comes (Ephesians 6) and rest in the promise of His coming, taking heart and encouragement in Him and His beauty.
