Today’s devotion for today is based on Psalm 27:4, “One thing I ask of the LORD, this only do I seek: 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 seek him in his temple.”
While this does not mean that King David wanted to move into the worship center, it does mean that he wanted to be a member of God’s family. He knew that as a member of God’s family, he had everything he needed—God’s love, forgiveness, and care. As long as he was a member of God’s family, he would be fine.
May this be our prayer as well—that what matters to us most, what we ask from him more than anything else, is that he keep us close to him so that we can continue to marvel at his beauty—the beauty of his love, his forgiveness, his care and concern for us. What could be better?
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, this one thing I ask: that I may dwell in your house all the days of my life. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
