One Thing?

I ask only one thing, Lord: Let me live in your house every day of my life to see how wonderful you are and to pray in your temple.

Psalm 27:4 

The "man after God's own heart," King David asked "one thing" of the Lord. That thing was this: David wanted to live in God's house and see how wonderful God is along with the right to pray in God's temple!

You may think you know someone very well, but if you move into their house, you find out so much more about who they are! God wants you to live in His house! He wants you to see how wonderful He is. God wants you to involve Him in every minute of your day! Jesus promised that He would be with us ALWAYS! And of course when you know for certain that Jesus is with you, what can come your way that would cause you to despair? If Jesus is with you then you are empowered in every situation!

But I think the most marvelous part of David's request of the Lord is that he be allowed to see how wonderful God is! When you live in the house of the Lord and see Jesus with you in every situation, you will live in a continual state of Awe as you marvel at the Creator of everything that there is and know that He is concerned about every second of your life!

"Lord Jesus, I want to live in Your house every day and continually see how wonderful you are. May You be praised forever. Amen."
